    Freeplay in rear linkage on a 2010 Yeti 575

    I currently have a 2010 Yeti 575 and notice a little freeplay in the rear linkage. When I life the seat I can feel the slightest clunking from the rear shock linkage. I can't isolate exactly where the freeplay is happening and (unfortunately) all the bolts feel tensioned properly. Am I likely dealing with a blown pivot bearing somewhere? Anyone have this issue and can propose a solution? Gotta hate freeplay!

    Cheers.
    Keep the rubber side down

    That or if you haven't taken off the drivetrain and checked the lower pivot bolts you should do that first

    Make sure the bolt that holds the rear triangle to the shock (the one where the shock bushing is) is tight. If it is tight then replace the bushing.

    I have had both problems most of the time it is the bushing but some of the time it is the bolt.
