Well i finally got my Perfex LT Kit on Friday and got it installed on Saturday but have yet to test it out. It gave me and inch and a half of lift on the back and almost the same on the front. The instructions that come with it aren't very good but i got it figured out through trial and error. The one thing I would say to those that buy the kit is pay close attention to the brackets on the back. Make sure the holes line up on the brackets because the directions don't tell you anything and the pictures are very vague. I also found that i had to jack up the body part of the Foreman along with the rear axle, it's the only way you'll get the shocks attached to the new brackets. I can post pictures if it will help. I can't wait to test it out!

the directions are a joke. the rear took about 3 beers and plenty of brain storming to figure it all out.
LOL......good thing i didn't have any beer or I never would have figured it out! The place that i bought the kit from didn't even package it very good, there were holes in the box and the kit was just sliding around inside, luckily I didn't loose any parts. Your right though, the directions are terrible.

I see you put the shocks on the farthest holes, does that make it ride better? It made my Foreman look like it was jacked up in the back and I didn't like the way it looked so I put them on the other setting.

I got a little more than an inch and half, still waiting to try it out, if only the weather would cooperate a little bit.

Where did you get the orange plastics? I like the way it looks in that color and on the HL lift springs, the front ones, do the tighter coils go to the bottom or top? From what iread in the directions it said Polaris springs have the tighter coil to the top so I put mine on the bottom.

I only got lift from the Perfex kit, the springs bring the bike back up to stock height, though i only had my machine for about a year when i put them on, i got about 1 3/4 inches of lfit from the Perfex Kit.

Good Lord! I would not even think about goin' outside in the 30's. It is about
65 degrees right now, & i think it is cold.
LOL..........30 is warm for this time of year, we had a streak of about 2-3 weeks where it never got about 10, that was a tad chilly.
