High Lifter is pleased to announce the newest
addition to its line of suspension enhancing products for 4WD,
utility ATVs. This product, the High Lifter Lift Springs, are a
set of higher capacity, replacement springs which are components
of the stock, shock absorbers. The original equipment spring is
not heavy duty and is often fatigued early by heavy loads or
continuous service with oversized tires, winches and bumpers, and
the weight of accumulated mud. The TRX-450, on which we prototyped
this product, gained about 1" of lift and ground clearance when we
installed these springs. (It already had a lift kit installed.)
Those stock springs were tired even though the ATV had less than
300 miles on it!
The High Lifter Lift Springs were engineered to provide about 100
additional pounds of capacity (per set) above new, original
equipment springs that have never been installed, and to be strong
enough to make a significant difference without being so strong as
to kill the ride.
A complete set of the Lift Springs may be installed for
substantially less than the cost of one replacement O.E.M. shock.
Where additional travel is needed, or adjustability of preload,
the aftermarket shock, though more expensive, may be the preferred
solution. For those who ride at slower speeds, with big tires and
heavier loads, the Lift Springs will be a welcome and economical
The Lift Springs are powder-coated in an eye-catching performance
yellow to let others see you have an upgraded suspension. They are
very attractive against the stock, black, original equipment
shock. The Lift Springs add some stiffness to the ride and
decrease roll, but have not been found harsh or uncomfortable by
anyone who has ridden them.
