I have a a 04.5 400 sportsman and noticed the yokes of the front axle shafts were loose (had lateral play) I took the shafts out and noticed that the problem is where the male axle shaft yokes (splines) enter the female part of the diff. Is this just normal wear, is it OK? I thought there was a bearing bad inside but everything looks good, no oil leaks, I changed it anyway. also the rear of my front driveshaft has a lot of play as well, again the splined part that slips together.

I'm not sure how much play yours has, but even my 08 sportsman 400 and 800 both have some play. Not alot, but they're definately not tight...
