The rear suspension on my 2014 Ranger 800 squeaks like hell after I have to pass through a mud or water hole and gets down right annoying . I don’t mud with it just hunting and running the deer lease. I rinse and clean it after a weekend of hunting and have sprayed a little grease on the bushings and it stops for a little while. Has anyone else had the same issue and what have you done to fix the issue. Thanks in advance.

Just about all the 700/800 have had this issue, polaris finally installed grease zerks on the A arm bushings on the 900.
There are several threads on this, type it in the search feature, and you will get the information you are looking for. Some of the threads have pics.

Remove all A arms and install grease zerks along with the rear bearing carrier.

On my 900 rear suspension where there was no grease fittings I had the squeaking right off the bat. I didn't take the time to drill and fit grease fitting. What I did was remove the attaching hardware and coated it with Anti-Seize grease and that pretty has done away the squeaking in question. I now have over 300 hours on the Ranger and it is still quiet. In wet country and mud that could be a different story and I would go the grease fitting route where Polaris left off.

Adding zerks is a huge plus. Even then, you can still get some squeaks from the shock mounting points, and adding zerks to those would be very difficult. So I spray some WD40 on my shock mounts after I pressure wash it.

I saw a comment above about greasing the 900 even though polaris added zerks. Is it necessary to add more zerks and grease the 900 despite whatolaris has done

Polaris did not put them (zerks) on the rear carrier bearing pivot points.

Right, and those wear out as quicker or quicker than the bushings on the frame end of the arms. Eventually it will oblong the carrier to the point it has to be replaced, I had to replace the ones on my '06 and that was a deciding factor in adding the zerks to that location.
