• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"


    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

I need the the torque arm for the rear suspension on a extra light . or all the suspension arms and shocks out of an edge or iq. and if i do that would i have to put taller shocks and longer radius arms and steering rods. I would like to do all that it is the wife that does not like seeing all that money go in to a toy in one big chunk after all the other parts i have gotten in the last month or to.

P.S. any buddy need an 05 550 edge touring DLX with 600 miles on it got it for the wife and she does not like the cold

Ok when you need parts post that info in the swap meet section . Now as for suspention compatiblty the iq tunnel is narrower so the arms will need spacers . Front shocks are 1-1/2" taller and i think you would want to go 44"+ on ski stance if you use them

Suspension arms

I have both the front and the back arms out of an edge. Went to a Holz and those get replaced. You will need shafts. These are yellow. The edge shocks are longer than the lite.
