    True. Material cost is a small fraction of total cost. Granted, a sway bar kit doesn't look like much. But there is quite a bit of labor that goes into it. BRP probably gets them made by the train...

    True. Could simply be a failed shock. Blown dampening valving, for example. You'll probably have to remove the coil spring to check this. If it's really bad it should be obvious.

    If you are bottoming out, you will get an unmistakable jarring action with the clunk. Any suspension will do the same, whether or not there is something mechanical wrong.

    True. Many do replace their pads prematurely. Though for different reasons. It isn't always due to lack of knowledge. If you need some help, let me know.

    If you don't think you are bottoming out, it could be your rear shock mount bolts are loose/bent or that a rubber grommet on your shock end is split or worn out. A number of possibilities here.

    Dry sump is just a better way to do things. Frankly, BRP would be foolish to use any other system. Like going from 2 wheels to 3. Going from wet sump to dry sump takes some getting...

    It's fairly easy to get the cap on wrong or not tight (last detent takes some effort as Chupaca says). The cap may well be your issue. Especially if someone has opened it recently.
