    Make sure you have lots of rags and parts cleaner to get all the old grease out of the joint to avoid contaminating the new grease with grit. The first front axle I removed on mine was really, really stuck in the front diff so I like to put a little Kopper Kote on the axle shaft splines to keep them from seizing. However, some people have had trouble keeping the axle in place on the inside end, so maybe that isn't the best idea.

    Also, make sure you have the right tool to install the clamps before you have it all torn apart. Remember, shop rate is $100 per hour around here so buying an overpriced $50 tool isn't a bad idea if I look at it that way. What you need depends on the type of clamp in the boot kit.

    PS. That stuck axle issue was solved while I went on a 2.5 hour parts run from camp and my friends were more productive in the absence of my inhibitions about breaking something. One of them is an automotive mechanic who manages a tire shop and service station so he just needed me to, well, leave.

    i am new to all of this and have discovered the "used" polaris I bought is really an "abused" polaris. In shop for head gaskets now and iam trying to save money by doing some myself. I could get the gorilla boot kit video to run. Are there any other videos or pics on how to remove axle from rear diff and how put on new cv boot? Thanks for all the help

    It's a very straight forward job. Just knowing that you're thinking about doing the work yourself, you probably have the mechanical skill necessary and shouldn't have any problems. Good luck.

    If you have some rubber gloves, wear them. the CV grease takes forever to get off your hands.

    I agree the process of cleaning and replacing the CV grease is a relatively easy one, but if you are not using the polaris grease kit with the specified type and amount of grease what CV grease are you guys using and how much is enough?

    There is a reference in the service manual about how many ounces to use.
