The Lift Springs are a set of higher capacity replacement springs which are components of the stock shock absorbers. The original equipment spring is not heavy duty and is often fatigued early by heavy loads or continuous service. OEM springs tend to fatigue rapidly…even with low mileage. The Lift Springs were engineered to provide about 100 additional pounds of capacity (per set) over the new stock springs. They were also designed to make a significant difference in the performance of your ATV with as little affect as possible on the ride and handling of the machine.
The Lift Springs add some stiffness to the ride and decrease roll, but have not been found harsh or uncomfortable by anyone who has ridden them. And here’s a big bonus! A complete set of the Lift Springs may be installed for substantially less than the cost of one replacement OEM shock. For those who ride at slower speeds, with big tires and heavier loads, the Lift Springs will be a welcome and economical upgrade.
Depending on the make and model…and current modifications to the unit, the Lift Springs have been known to add on full inch of suspension lift…however, it’s not guaranteed. The Lift Springs add some stiffness to the ride and decrease roll, but have not been found harsh or uncomfortable by anyone who has ridden them. One thing is for sure. If you are a hardcore mud rider…or you carry a load…your ATV could stand a heavier load capacity. The Lift Springs are just what the doctor ordered!
This kit will not work on X2 or touring models unless otherwise stated.
On 2011-2014 models, the Polaris spring kit adaptor is required for the Spring installation on 2011-2014 models that have the “new stamped steel” spring adjustment collar instead of the old style aluminum adjustment collar Polaris has always used.
NOTE: Powder-coating the springs will void any warranty. If you wish to paint your springs, you must use a different method.
