gas strut
Had to adjust the snow blade level after installing the new struts. Didn't realize how bad they had gotten. Bike feels and rides much better now.

much better
it is a lil stiffer on sharp bumps but overall good strut. Needs to come with a lock nut and a bumper that fits the smaller shaft.Some adjustability wouldn"t hurt either

Overall good shock
Has been a good shock absorber so far. It is a little rougher than it was with factory shocks, but it gets the job done.

Quality Issues and not OEM Spec
Unfortunately I won't be able to mount this shock so I won't comment on the shock dampening quality. That may be quite good.
My issue is with the different size of shaft (thinner so the OEM rubber buffer that slides over it is totally loose) and the thread at the top, which is an M12 x 1.25, while the original Polaris is a 7/16/20NC. That means neither the original upper spring retainer nor the expensive Polaris nut will fit. Also the included spring retainer has a slightly bulgier top, which gives a bad fit to the lower bottom ball pivot. I could use the supplied nuts and retainers, but worst of all is that one of the large nuts has the thread cut into angled and one of the standard top hex nuts has no thread inside at all. Okay, I guess just bad luck, but the guy who put that nut on there should be fired, because it falls down the thread. That's aside that split locknuts should be used to secure the strut.
So these struts are in no way easy replacements for a Sportsman 500. All the trouble could be avoided if these struts and all products in this catalog would have a data sheet or complete specs.
