Been thinking of getting one but havent decided what one to get since robb says on one u gain ride and lift and the other you just get lift.

Rubicon3303, I've had no problems with the axles after installing the kit. The CV's are at a little more of an angle, but so far ive been happy with the results. I've gone riding several times and haven't heard any unfamiliar noises.

I think it was Robb in the 450 forum that had a problem after putting his kit on. He was supposedly going to send some digital pics to HL, I'm curious to what HL said about his problem.

Budman - Here is what they told me:

QUOTE
From Highlifter - I got the pictures and forwarded them on to our research guys. From what I saw and what they told me everything looked to be installed correctly. We have sold thousands of the kits over the years and never had a problem like this. My recommendation would be; If you think that the lift will harm your machine, remove it. We can not refund your money because the kit has been installed.
I still have yet to take my axles apart, I suspect there may be something wrong with them.

Robb,did you ever get a torn boot on your axles before the problem.I had a branch poke a hole in my rf axle(inner),didnt notice it for awhile untill a noise occured.I took it out and a local auto cv rebuilder cleaned it up and put a new boot with grease for $30.They told me they stock boot kits and joints for atvs now .Call around and ask prices...Other than that one time i never had a Honda axle fail on me,at on time i hade a HL lift kit and the progressive shocks(1 inch lift)with 27 589s.NO problems,just rode like a tank...Let me know if i can help,or update me what you find...
