I am probably gonna put a 2 inch lift on our Foremans.
What are the cons of doing this besides premature cv
joint failure. How hard is it on the drivetrain & basically
the overall performance? I already know the pro's of the
lift. I'm just a little worried things may start to break. How
is the ride quality with the lift installed. I know i am gonna
take my lift springs off. That would just be too rough of a
ride. Thanks in advance.

i think you will be fine besides you need the aditional ground clearance for all that grass ridin you do don't want any of those dirty ol blades touchy the ol foreman now do we.ha ha ha man i'm funny on a serious note yes cv wear will increase but that's about all the increase in gc will be well worth it.

Cons: premature cv wear, premature bearing failure, added stress on u-joint.

Pro's: Do i really need to name them?

Aren't the inside of your CV joints wearing ..?.. I had 1 at work that couldn't have a new boot installed because the inside was mushroomed so badly it wouldn't come apart ..

Mine are fine. Is that gonna happen to mine? I don't ride that
aggressive. Every once in a while i'll get a wild hair, but most
of the time i just pa-pa it around.
