I've known several people who have gone back to running regular boots on their gorilla's b/c the gorilla boots just dont seem to hold up.

I'm suprised your having that much trouble outta just a 2in and HL springs....you should see my angles and knock on wood I've had good luck out of them, lifts been on the bike since May 6, 2010 and I have not been nice to it.

IF they do fit....let us know, when I do tear a boot it'd be alot easier to get stock boots around here than gettin new gorillas

Try a polaris stock boot, take the axle by ur local popo dealer and get them to let u see a boot & see if it looks like it will fit. I've heard of a bunch of guys runnin a stock polaris boot on their G-axle b/c it has less ribs, the g-axle boot has so many ribs they rub each other, get hot (heat & friction) and the tear. At least, I've seem it happen on a buddies axles.

Nobody in my area stocks much Gorilla stuff, its pretty much all gotta be ordered except now and then when you just get lucky and a previous customer ordered it and then didnt want it. Stock boots are available at every lil rinky dink atv shop around here lol....so they are "easier".
