2 inch Lift

6167 Views 11 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Railroader
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?
I have a highlifter 2in lift on my foreman....and i havent had any probeloms yet...but my cvs are stressin.....you just gotta take it easy..and not dawg it out and you should probaly be ok....the over all height that it gives your gives and apperancce is pertty good.
And if you should break a axle i got 2 in perfect condition for sale.

I got the Perfex kit put it on 2 weeks ago. You should come check it out.
Thanks for the replies ya'll. We may put them on this weekend.
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.
