Well guys this is my plan....

Right now I am running the perfex long travel kit in the front! I took the rear off cuz I had it for 3 days and snapped the rear U joint...plus it doesnt give my bike anymore ground clearance in the rear! I am thinking of running HL lift springs all around witch should lift my fourwheeler up but about .5" in the rear and on the front! I am gunna run 28" Mud Bugs or mud lites by the way witch is lighter out of the two???

Sound good to yall?

a lift in the rear will not give you more ground clearance. the only way to get more ground clearance is to add taller tires. my guess is that the mudlites would be lighter. they have a week side wall, not 6 ply on side walls. they also run at least an inch short. by making them short itp can advertise a lower weight thus making them some of the lightest on the market.

my 1st set of aftermarkets was mudlites. i was extremely disappointed with them. maybe i would have been happier if i knew how short they would be and ordered bigger size to compensate the shortage of rubber. just my 2 cents.

Yeah I know with a SRA the only way to get more ground clearance is with taller tires! I guess I will go with the Mud bugs then! I wonder how stiff my ride will be with those springs

I have had my perfex kit on for 2 weeks not with no problems yet and I took it to the Mud Nat's!! I'm a big guy so I think I squat mine down enough that it takes, what little lift it gives you, away. I will be putting my HL springs on this week and I will let you know what changes and how it does!

how did your rear u-joint break so soon?
What can I say I ride hard!! I'm guessing it broke alittle at a time then it finally just snapped! I was riding out of my front drive way and I shifted into 2nd gear and hammered on it and I didnt go anywhere.....
