Changed the swing arm bearings in my bosses 08/09 420 today, when I was refitting the swing arm I noticed a second set of holes on the frame about an inch below the mounts. What are these for?
I did consider bolting it back together using the lower holes to see if there was any noticeable differences other than a slight lift, I decided against thatbin the end and put it back together as it should be.

can't say ?, I've only seen early 420 models, no late models, sooo..have no idea about those holes ?, but it does look like it was made to give it a lift ?.

I had an 08 FM Rancher and then picked up an 09 AT Rancher. Just out of curiosity I compared to see how hard it would be to swap the IRS rear into a footshift.

The 07-08 Frames were a little different and required brackets to be fabbed to swap in the IRS rear subframe. The 09-13 420 Frames were all the same, and had mounting points for both SRA and IRS.

If you put it in the lower holes I'd say it would put your drive shaft in a major bind. It's for the subframe for irs machines
