Installed RSX 2" Lift from these guys last night...Install was simple...I am concerned about the angle of the rear axle and upper and lower ball joints...So in the rear you are basically cranking your preload from 2" (factory) to 4" with spacer...Has any one else used this setup and have you had any problems? What kind of driving and haw many miles since you installed it?

Me too!!! Pics please. I have noticed on my RSX the suspension has sagged quite a bit since I bought it last month. I was going to adjust the springs tomorrow as an interim fix, but think the 2" lift may be in the future

Got this response back from Super ATV...This will not cause any problems with the suspension, ball joints, or CV joints.

Since you have to tighten up the rear springs, how is the ride?

Also have you done any trail riding with this set up in the mountains.

Not bad at all...I was worried at first, I actually turned them back to 1-1/2" and rode a while...but I then increased it back to 2" it rides fine...the extra height is very nice...Where I ride it all Trail / Wood riding.
