Inspect the Frame
This may seem like a long shot but some who own ATVs and UTVs may have crashed them at one time or another. Looking closely at the frame of the used machine could reveal this stunt’s results. Obvious signs of bent steel will most likely be found around shock towers or where the shocks attach to the frame. Providing the frame has not been painted the cracks in factory paint or rust forming on the welds may be an indication of foul play. Search underneath the machine for obvious slams the belly has taken during the driver’s escapades. Get the unit on a level surface and look at it from the front as well as the rear. Is it sitting crooked or does one side lean over farther than the other? Busted shocks will cause this appearance as well.
