Gator 825i S4 Spring Spacers Installed

Here are pictures of the SuperATV spring spacer kit installed, before installation 825i S4 had approximately 10.5in ground clearance at the back. Once installed I get 12" no binding on suspension or cv.
The springs on the 825i s4 are extremely stiff compared to regular ATV springs, ratchet straps won't cut it.
If you are thinking of installing spacers, be safe use automotive spring compressor kit. Rent one or borrow a set.

Total install time approx. 2 hours with one bruised finger

This is the compressor set I used

From the fox shock plowing question I'm considering something like this next time.

Air Ride just gotta work on the WAF (Wife acceptance factor)

Possibly somethin from this company would fit the 825i you only need to match the distance eye to eye and width
