    Very well-made, beautiful gussets...but pack a lunch.

    This is a great product, very well made. Powder was on point. Quality addition to my ride. However - I had 2 buddies helping, and we're all pretty mechanical...and it took most of one day & half of another to get the whole thing in. After disassembly, the only things left in front of the firewall were frame & radiator. It was a CHORE.

    can-am X3 Gusset kit and Shock Tower Brace

    Posted by Dave on Nov 23rd 2020

    Excellent fit on both. Install is fairly easy, but you do have to remove the diff to install the front gusset. The other pain was getting the two lower back stock gusset bolts out. Other than that, everything went smooth. An install video would have been nice? Oh and my wife likes the S3 logo.

    Great fit and finish. These can ams are built pretty cheesy and this is definitely an improvement.

    Well thought out integration with shock tower

    Posted by Dave M on Feb 17th 2020

    Well made, powder coat is spot on to the silver x3 frame it looks great and everything is finished and packaged nicely. Instructions are good but I do not believe they have updated them in a while as the front lower control arm bolts now have nuts welded into the interior plate (maybe I’m supposed to set it up jam but style but I do not think that is possible based on the number of threads coming through the plate) I’ve used another brand of gusset kit on my other X3 and while it wasn’t finished as nice and only available in black it did tie the rear upper control arm mount into the front reinforcement plate don’t know if that really makes a big difference or not but I think the S3 guys know what you need as good as any of the other shops that fabricate a bunch of high quality parts for this machine. If you are buying this gusset kit you should also do the shock tower brace at the same time it really ties in well with their gusset kit. The number of bolts you secure the front plate with is significant. S3 also bothered to provide bolts which are correctly shouldered based on where you are loading them, (threads are weaker than the shoulder). Yes it requires you to pull the front diff, yeah it doesn’t tie into the rear UCA mount but for the play car set this is probably enough!

    can am x3 Gusset kit

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 3rd 2020

    Overall a great addition to the stock set up. Finish on all the parts is great, the fit and look sharp and add the strength you need to push your unit harder. Instructions can use a little more detail but there is enough to make out what needs to be done. Some parts did need a little modification due to the thick powder coating (rear lower a arm mount) but other then that great kit.

    A-Arm gusset kit

    Posted by Darrell Patton on Jan 2nd 2020

    The over all kit does what it needs to. I had to grind the saddle out of the lower rear A-arm mount as it wouldn’t fit over my frame. Looks great and super strong. Would have given 5 stars if I didn’t have to grind on it
