Our Can-Am X3 Front Spindle Knuckles are Sold in Pairs

If there is a constant reality that faces all Can-Am side-by-side owners, it’s that eventually, your OEM steering and suspension components are going to fail at the most inconvenient time. Let’s face it, with every mud hole, rut, whoop, or jump you navigate, the potential of the OEM front knuckle breaking or walling out dramatically increases. So, if you’re looking for a high-quality Can-Am X3 front knuckle upgrade, Black Ops Machine has you covered. 

Our Double Shear X3 front knuckles for Can-Am’s is the aftermarket replacement part you need. These X3 billet knuckles are made from 6061 billet aluminum. And since we don’t want you to wad up your stuff due to a knuckle that broke or a jacked-up wheel bearing, it’s a double shear mount – which provides additional stability, strength, rigidity, and driving control. 

Additionally, we manufacture each of our aftermarket knuckles with a sealed bearing carrier. This helps to keep water, mud, dirt, and other contaminants from clogging the wheel bearing with stuff that doesn’t belong there. Finally, and we’re just gonna brag, the anodized black aluminum design on this front knuckle simply looks bitchin. 

As you likely know, removing bearings from an OEM knuckle can be a pain in the ass. So, anytime you replace a Can-Am front knuckle, you’ll want to install fresh bearings as well. This is easier – and it will extend your parts life. 

Oh – and just cause we have to say it – make sure to replace your front knuckles in pairs; which is why we sell them that way. 


We know you’ve got questions about our Black Ops Machine aftermarket replacement parts – and we have genuine answers. Here are a few common questions we get from our valued customers – and those trolls who have nothing better to do. 

Q – What Causes Front Knuckle Failure?

A – An ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle) knuckle, also known as a steering knuckle or hub assembly, is a critical component of the vehicle’s suspension and steering system. It connects the wheel assembly to the suspension components and allows for movement and steering. 

Several factors can lead to the failure of a Can-Am front knuckle including general wear and tear, exposure to dirt, water, and other elements, and hard impacts. 

Q – What’s the Benefit of a Double Shear Front Knuckle? 

A – So here’s the deal – it all comes down to rigidity. A single shear knuckle? Yeah, it’s got just one attachment. Picture this: you’re cruising on the road, and you hit a rock really hard. Well, in that case, the knuckle can snap right off the spindle because of that one attachment point. And let me tell you, it’s also easier for it to get all wallowed out.

The double-shear knuckle prevents these problems from happening because it has two attachments to the spindle. This gives it extra strength and rigidity. So, when you hit that same rock, if one mount cracks, the other will probably stay intact. That means you can get back to camp or home and replace it.

Q – What’s Your Return Policy?

A – Truthfully, we don’t have a documented return policy.  Black Ops Machine is dedicated to catering to like-minded, hardworking Patriots who prefer to team up with trustworthy US-based companies for top-notch replacement parts. 

So – here is our return policy for you guys and gals. If you haven’t given that part a new home in your machine, or tried to install it and failed, we’re happy to take it back. Just handle the shipping fee, send us your original order number, and drop your contact info. We’ll handle the rest.
