It took me almost 5 hours to install the springs ($99) from Highlifter. I just ordered the Front & Rear Springs and did not know to purchase the $39 Spring Compressor tool they offer. I had to improvise with a homemade device, but I would have rathered order the tool along with the springs. I pushed on the rear end before the install and it was very soggy response (probably from me overloading it all the time). The front was a little better. After the install I got at least 1-1/2" more ground clearance. With the 25" Maxxis Radial Bighorns underpressured (better mud riding) I was sitting at around 10" clearance again. I gave it a quick 30 minute run and put it to the test. The front end does not have near the push in the turns. I don't know why, but it is actualy easier to steer, even in 4x4. I transversed a few slopes that usualy made me nervous about tipping and hot damn it felt a lot more stable. The ride was only slightly more bumpy (not as much as I expected)and completely acceptable. I am hoping with these stiff springs I won't be slamming my frame on so many rocks. I have yet to go up or down any steep hills (none on my property) so I guess I will have to post again later and let you know how it handles after my next outing. I hope everyone post their "Before" and "After" reports on the mods they do so the rest of us can decide if we want to do the same.
