    hi, I just bought a blaster frame disassembled and I'm going to try and turn the blaster into an electric ATV. i started to clean the parts to be painted so that i can put everything together. I found that the ball joint on the end of the left a-arm was sheared off. so I found someone selling a new one but they said the angle on the part could be different than the one I have, and that the wheel hub then won't be able to be bolted because the bottom and the top arms will have different angles. I was wondering if this is actually a thing that could happen. the blaster frame I have is a 1988 and he is selling parts for 2000 to 2001. I am not too familiar with blaster frames so I just wanted to double-check.

    88 was the first year.
    There were some differences.
    Looked it up on rockymountainatvmc
    And they are different part numbers
    Yours should be 2xj-23570-01-35 (1988)
    3jm-23570-00-35 (2000)

    thank you very much i did look a little closer at the parts as well and it looked like one had a bolt with a nut attached and one had just a pin
