To remove and install the front lower A-arm on your model year 2021 and newer RZR 200 EFI, follow these steps:

1. Park the vehicle on a flat, level surface and ensure the parking brake is set.

2. Remove the wheels from the vehicle. 

  • Loosen the lug nuts with a 15mm socket with breaker bar while the vehicle is on the ground, but do not remove them at this time.
  • Safely elevate the vehicle. Reference your Owner’s Manual for proper lifting techniques.
  • Once safely elevated, remove and retain the lug nuts and set aside. 
  • Remove the wheels and set aside. 

3. Remove and retain the front lower stabilizer bar linkage fastener with a 13mm wrench and 15mm socket. Discard the nut.

4. Remove and retain the lower shock mounting fastener with a 13mm wrench and 15mm socket. Discard the nut.

5. Remove and retain the lower steering spindle fastener with a 13mm wrench and 15mm socket. Discard the nut.

6. Continue by carefully removing the ball joint stem from the steering spindle.

7. Remove the lower A-arm mounting fasteners with a 15mm socket and 15mm wrench. Discard the nuts.

8. Pivot the A-arm down to remove from the vehicle.

9. Inspect the A-arm bushings and pivot tube for damage and wear. Replace as necessary.

10. If reusing the A-arm, inspect the ball joint and ball joint boot for wear, tears, or damage and replace if necessary.

11. If reusing the A-arm, thoroughly clean with a shop rag before reinstalling.

12. If replacing the A-arm, new A-arm bushings, pivot tubes and a ball joint will need to be installed into the arm.

13. Align the A-arm with mounting holes in the frame and reinstall the retained A-arm mounting fasteners from the inside while loosely installing new nuts.

14. Carefully insert the ball joint into the steering spindle.

15. Reinstall the retained lower steering spindle fastener and loosely install a new nut.

16. Inspect the shock bushing for any wear or damage and ensure it is fully seated.

17. Reinstall the retained lower shock mounting fastener from the rear of the vehicle and loosely install a new nut.

18. Reinstall the retained linkage fastener from the front of the vehicle while loosely installing a new nut.

19. Torque the A-arm mounting fasteners to 44 ft-lbs (60 Nm).

20. Torque the steering spindle fastener to 44 ft-lbs (60 Nm).

21. Continue by torqueing the front lower shock mounting fastener to 44 ft-lbs (60 Nm).

22. Torque the front stabilizer bar linkage nut to 37 ft-lbs (50 Nm).

23. Reinstall the wheels on the vehicle and tighten the lug nuts until fully seated. 

24. Safely lower the vehicle until the tires begin to touch the ground. This will help keep the wheels in place when torqueing. 

25. Once lowered, torque the lug nuts to 30 ft-lbs (40 Nm) in a crisscross pattern. 

26. Finally, lower the vehicle completely.
