Highlifter Springs Installed. I was impressed with the added ground clearance. Anyone wondering if they should I would recommend them. 1.5" increase all around.

Stiffer Spring, yes. Easy to install with the spring compressor tool highlifter sells. I would recommend getting it.

I personally would but I have never ran with a lift.
There is a lot of talk about the need to upgrade axles to high strength if you go to a lift kit and busting CV joints if you don't.
I am happy with the added lift the springs gives plugs the added weight you can haul without compressing the springs as much.

That being said a lift is still on my wish list.

Rhino brand axles are really beaffy and I got mine for $200 a pop from moto alliance, a must have if you are adding more angle to your CV joints

Agree, I was pleasantly suprised with the added ground clearance. Worth every penny imo. Another little benifit is the 660 pops wheelies now like nothing. Stiffer spring = more power transfer to the tires I guess not just the rear end sag I had before when I punched it. cheers

And thats before I install the JBS sheave. Still have not got around to it yet.. Sad
