Lift kit on Honda recon??

Dream Car Giveaway

i have/had a 3" lift on my quad. went well for about a yr till something happend. i put on 27" tires same as u wanted mudlite xtr's with 14" ss rims. i did the clutch kit for the bigger tires put in a jet kit to change the computer a lil worked mint. became very top heavy when manuevering kinda didnt like that at all but got used to it. one day was out at a huge ride 80-100 people got about a mile into it and i pulled the bearing out of the outer spindle on the cv axle. sucked hardcore...blew the belt trying to get it back to my trailer...so basically it was a 300 dollar fix right off the bat...luckily knew a guy who does cv restoration and had an old belt that i scored from the dealership. did the whole thing myself for 160 bucks...good to go.....NOT! went to pull it out of the garage to park it...ripped it out again first time i turned the wheel....so long story short i took the lift out of the front so its just stock. bought the upgraded heavy duty front springs and thats how she is to this day...3" lift in the back heavy duty springs up font still sits level...read into it before u buy. 2" isnt that bad but its the headache of getting the parts and fixing this and that for nothing....see what u can fit for stock tires get a clutch kit and just keep it at that. unless ur going out and buying new longer axles i wouldnt recommend it.

no not the differential it actually didnt pull out at all it wore down the bearings inside the outer cv joint. so the shavings bound up inside and made it seize. but only in one little spot. the new axle i had made up pulled out from the outer joint completely and wrapped around the control arm...returned it and got a new one. and yes it is an exact for the sportsman it is made for it. the second one has been fine so far but like i said i took the front lift out. my plow is about the same drops a couple inches even with the heavy duty srpings upfront...i dont keep weight in the back cause 4 wheel usually gets me everywhere and with the tires its pretty good
