Hey all,

Just a few words of caution. I installed a 2 inch lift kit from highlifter and it ended up costing me an additional $80 bucks to fix the damage it caused. After riding for a few weeks with it installed, I found the cv boots torn on the front inner drive shafts. I took a look at it and discovered the axle was rubbing against the inner part of the bearing housing because of the extream angle the axle was at and ripped open the cv boots. If I would have driven it longer both drive shafts would have needed replacing ($600+). I've also removed the lift kit, big waste of time and money. If you want extra ground clearance, I'd recomend getting bigger tires.

I read about this probably 6 mos ago on some other sites, and that's what turned me off to the idea of a lift kit on the Rincon.

You might contact Gorilla Axle to see if they will sell you their heavy-duty CV boots. That may solve the problem.
