1: who would you buy from ?

2: do they give you any more lift (i already have a 2'' lift)

3: are they just longer than the stock ones and keep the shock extended more if they do give you any lift.

i have tried over and over again to email someone from highlifter and never get a response. can any one point me in the right direction please

thanks
mike

Mike they are not suppose to lift the bike, they are made to replace worn or sagging factory springs and will keep your shocks fully extended. They also give 100 more pounds to the payload of the bike. Mine did not add any lift to my 450. As far as emailing HL, it would be better for u to call them and talk to one of the sells reps.

that sucks, i'm really looking for a little more lift. getting ready to buy some 27'' outlaws and i know i'm going to have problems with them clearing the bar that runs right behind the front tire and under the foot peg. ever since i put the 1'' spacers on, when i make tight turns and hit a hole or dip, my tires grab a little. they are 27'' mudlites.

i see alot of guys here that have outlaws on there bikes. i'm afraid to put 29'' tires on my bike because i really dont want to break stuff in the middle of the woods. and i really cant see them fitting with out grabbing that bar. what have any of you guys done to fit these tires with out them grabbing that bar behind the tire, or for that fact grabbing the lower rear fender by your heal?????

i'm at a toss up at the moment to buy the 27'' or 29.5'' outlaws but i want to be assured they wont grab that bar and kill my turning radius.

thanks in advance
mike

I HAVE 28X10 OUTLAWS WITH A 2" LIFT AND MY TIRES DID HIT THAT BAR AT FIRST UNTIL I JUST TURNED MY TIRES, PLACED MY FOOT ON THE BAR, AND THEN GAVE IT A LITTLE PUSH. NO MORE RUBBING. GO WITH THE 29.5's. I WISH I WOULD HAVE...
