Rear suspension assistance
This is a discussion on Rear suspension assistance within the Ranger XP 900 & 570 FS Discussions forums, part of the Polaris Ranger Forums category; Driving the other day at low speeds I heard a WHAM! when I went over a bump. I don't know the names of the parts ...

that is the rear sway bar and sway bar links/bushings and brackets
the rubber bushings will have a "shape" to them, the warping you describe this is normal
What is not normal is that one of your bushings fell off, whether it un threaded itself or came apart or whatever....it should be a very simple fix

If it simply unscrewed then put the link back in the hole and reinstall the bushing/nut. The nut is a locknut so I doubt it unscrewed unless it was just hand tightened to begin with. If it's stripped you'll want to replace that link and the nut/bushing.
Yes, the fix was easy, I jacked it up to get it back in the hole and screwed it back on, this time with a little blue loctite.
Also, thanks for the terminology reference.
The question remains, where the bushings get connected to the bracket. The shape of it. Is it normal? It looks bent on one side. Is this by design?
Can any post a pic for comparison?
Look at the parts diagram in your owners manual or on line to get an idea of the shape it should be.

If guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns. An armed society is a polite society.

The shape of the mounting brackets is the way they come from the factory.
