I'm trying to install new bushings in the bottom of my front shock on a 2004 TRX 350TE 2A. The bushing that came out of it had a metal sleeve around it, but the parts diagrams on various websites don't show a 2-piece bushing. I went ahead and ordered the bushing shown in the diagrams, what they call a "collar" - part# 91253-MBR-003. My shock shows the model as HN4-M01. Anyway, the collar that I received was much to small to fill up the hole in the bottom of the shock.
The parts diagram for a TRX 400EX-A does show some sort of 2-piece design. Is it possible the my TRX350 has TRX400 shocks in it or, if not, would the TRX400 parts fit in my HN4-M01 shock?

Any ideas?

Did you buy your ATV used? Does your entire shock package look like the stock assemblies? Is it possible the previous owner swapped in a different set? Possible you could be trying to cross ref the wrong model or parts listing

I did indeed buy it used, so there's no telling what's going on. Visually, it looks like the diagram for the stock 350, not the 400 which has an adjustable front shock if I recall correctly. It's almost like the shock itself may have been changed in later production for the 350 or something.
I went ahead and ordered the bushings for the 400 and I'll see if they fit.

odds are the whole shock is form a different atv
many folks added different shocks to gain LIFT, over a lift kit

Yep, I wouldn't doubt that at all since they had the rear lifted and bigger tires all around.
