i built my own with my 2007 foreman 500.

i took 2" sch 40 black conduit, the same stuff i used for my snorkel. then i cut a 1" piece off for each of the rear shocks and then i put them in. it helped alot. no more sag out of it.

you could even go a little more depending on how bad your springs are sagging

HL lift kits use spacers in the springs also. Bit of a pain in the azz to install but works.

Im using 1in aluminim spacers in the rear. I installed them to help when I have a passenger on back or a load on the rack. Got em off ebay cheap but make your own sounds way better.

if you look at the top of the spring you can see the 2" sch-40 pvc. it worked great

Did you use a proper spring compressor to get them on there? I have seen some "interesting" work-arounds for that... Not overly safe ones.
