    I think if you're going to do a lift kit that repositions the top shock mounts it ought to be at least a boxed insert that goes inside the stock bracket. Heck even if you're not doing a lift, one could clamp or weld in a piece of boxed stock in that area and beef it up substantially.
    Whoever engineered the high lifter setup should be fired. What a seriously flawed setup. Nice job coming up with the square tube shock mount support.

    Definitely sucks. I usually don’t complain about much. But what really irritates me is I wrote up a review on the main highlifter site because I noticed there were no reviews and hoped I could save someone like myself the headache . A while ago I wrote a very professional and respectful review and taking full responsibility but it says it goes to a administrator for approval so either no one is writing anything good or there not allowing any reviews. It’s pretty sad I am a business owner myself and would not want this kit with my name on it the right thing to do is stand behind your product not just hope people don’t know and sell as many as you can, so unless you here about it you can get sucked into it just like I did.

    Has corporate talked to you about you results with the high lifter. They have to know about there product being junk.

    It really sucks, because I need a lift, I rode today and beat the hell out of the underside of my X2. Except for going to 28, I have no other choice!

    No response. I guess super atv does have blocks that go on ur coil spring 2” but haven’t herd much about them. To be honest without adding some support to the top shock mount I’m not 💯 I would add a lift . After I added the tubing recommended by over kill that’s a different story I put a huge pry bar on it yesterday and it isn’t moving now what so ever but you can’t use the highlifter kit with that setup nor would I even if I could it’s a terrible design.

    So just wanted to let guys know after removing the high lifter kit from the front ( no choice) and running a square piece of tubing through the frame and welding it in place . I put it to the test this weekend with big rocks and rocky creek beds and held up great actually impressed. What does boggle my mind is I ended up keeping the rear highlifter kit in .But sitting on flat surface by eye you would not noticed the difference. so I measured and there is maybe a inch difference from frame tubing in the front to the rear of the machine isn’t it supposed to be 3.5” lift ?
