    HighLifter Springs Installed

    I installed my HighLifter Springs yesterday. Raised the front 1" and the rear 1 3/4". Left sway bar connected and have not test ridden yet. You will need the correct spring compressor to do this as the springs are to small for a car type. I ended up taking my struts to the ATV shop and they changed the springs for $50.00.

    Let us know how they work out. Do you have a lift kit in yours or are you only using the springs for lift.

    I also found that removing the rear sway bar from the bike made a huge difference in 2wd traction and the overall ride of the bike. The bike even has the same fell going round corners at speed.

    I do not have the lift kit, but with all the extra weight from the Winch, safety glass windshield, tool box, extra battery, rear window and other adds I wanted the added lift from the heaver springs.

    Rode yesterday and am very happy with the new HL springs. Ride is near the same as stock but BR doesn't bottom out anymore.

    First hard ride after installation of the springs.....wow what a difference! Never bottomed out! I would HIGHLY recommend them for every BR!

    Well....put the springs thru the ultimate test today, everyone SHOULD install these!!!! Went to the Appleton MN off road park today and put the BR over many jumps, hills, log climbs, pipe climbs and rock crawling and NEVER bottomed out!!! Cannot say enough about these springs!!!!!!

    Re: HighLifter Springs Installed

    Hey guys, how about sharing your installation process, like how you compress the springs for those who don't have an ATV shop nearby. Also, part number and best buy info would be appreciated as well.

    Update: I found the answer to my question in an earlier thread on this subject. Most people are compressing the springs with an automobile spring compressor and might be able to rent one from an auto parts store. Now to find the lowest price for these springs.

    Re: HighLifter Springs Installed

    The spring compressor I have was too big so I improvised, I used a screwdriver on one end (thru the shock bushing) and then used a ratchet strap wrapped around the screwdriver and the spring and compressed it that way. This works but you must be careful!!!! I was in too big of a hurry to use the right tools!

    Re: HighLifter Springs Installed

    Has anybody installed a set of these High Lifter Springs on a 2011/12 BR yet? I called High Lifter today and the salesman did not know if their springs would still work since Honda made some modifications for the 2011's.
    Also how about the Gorilla Axle lift kit...anybody tried it on a 2011/12 BR?

    Re: HighLifter Springs Installed

    What do y'all think?
    I'm thinking that my 11/BR has adjustable rear shocks and I've give it one click of three to help when there ae clients in the back while hunting.
    It made the rear about 1/2 inch higher. I'm sure it helped the bottoming out of the front.
    We went to HL yesterday and they swapped out my front springs.
    They held the front end weight better therefore it sets up 7/8 th inch higher.
    I give the rear end one more click up and the rear sets 1/8higher than the front.
    It might ride great or not. Didn't have time to test it.
    For around a hundred bucks I might need to buy the rear set.
    It does look different with the two sets of springs...black rear yellow front.

    Re: HighLifter Springs Installed

    I have a 2009 BR. What would be the correct part number for the springs to fit my rig both front and back?
    Thanks

    Re: HighLifter Springs Installed

    I think they just built one set for each.
    I ordered the rear set yesterday and the number for the front SPRHF700BR.
