Good info here thanks! I noticed that my rear was higher than the front, and wondered about that. I may do some testing and lower the rear some like your suggesting. I have noticed a difference in the way the front and rear react to bumps and ruts but haven’t messed with anything yet.I believe the Wolv 'rake' is probably OEM setup just a result of maximizing the travel of the shocks and anticipated heavy loads in bed. Which is probably a best initial generic setup for this litigious society. However, I would respectfully submit that when you think of how the center of gravity reacts to a vehicle in motion with dips and bumps and how that affects the change of direction of the mass, then I want to keep it about level and balanced side to side to react to the forces encountered. I could not find that the OEM manual addresses this matter. But I did find in the Fox Shock manual for their upgrade shocks that they say in print, the shocks should be preload adjusted so that "the FRONT should always be 1/2" to 1" higher than the REAR". (that's not exact wording but close-should have cut and pasted it lol). My nephew is an atv racer and has a racing shock business and that is the way he has taught me to setup my machines. Even though we Wolvs typically don't come close to racing stresses, cutting a 20 mph path down a wooded, rutted, bumpy trail makes me want all the advantage I can get. I would encourage all to test different configurations and adjust to what your riding style and load carrying configurations are. (btw- the Fox Manual has some good primer and glossary on what the compression and rebound adjustments can do for anyone interested)
After installing the 2" Perfex lift I noticed my steering either pulls left or right, the machine does not want to track straight.
It is most noticeable on pavement or hard surfaces. I think I may remove it.
Yes. It's probably toed in after the lift.Sorry to open an old thread... But, I just got my lift installed and also am noticing a "darting" feeling when turning on blacktop that didn't exist before the lift. I had always thought my machine had quite a visible negative camber. Now, with the lift on, the camber seems to be pretty neutral. I don't believe camber can be adjusted anyway...
Is there something to the Toe being changed with the lift that I should look at then?
