2" Pipe lift on the 07 750 brute

i just put a 2" pipe lift on the front of my brute. It made it really stiff. It seemed like the front end was saggin a little so i figured it would help. Has anyone else done this and will it hurt the ball joints or anything else with it in such a bind?

ive got a 2inch pipe lift on all four corners of mine and love it. i turned my shocks all the way down after one ride with them up and it made for a better ride with them turned down. i ride hard and havent had any problems out of mine

i went ahead and turned my springs all the way down to help some but it has like no give. the only way it will budge is when i stand on the front rack and jump.

there is a difference in the 07 springs and the 09 springs. that could be why JHR's is so much stiffer than yours bigblackbrute.

ya imma go on a ride with emc tomorrow and try it out. But im thinkin that it might be a little much. I might just have to go buy some HL springs instead.

you could always cut them down to 1" or 1.5".... Would probably give you the performance you're looking for.

i went on a good long ride today and its not that bad. Dont get me wrong its stiff as crap but its nothng i cant handle. Just hard to turn sometimes. I was just worried it would be bad on my ball joints. Its too much of a pain to take em off and cut them in half or i would. The autozone spring compressor worked great taking the stock springs off but i had to go a different route putting them back together with the 2" coupling.
