Anyone running spacers? Looking to put on my super atv Bracket lift but don't wanna loose the width I have. was thinking of landing spacers to keep the width the same when I install the lift. Thoughts?

I am using the 2" spacers from UTV inc. I like them because the added 4" in width adds stability and it softens the suspension

Could you post a head on view so I can see how she sits with the wider stance....

As soon I get it back.
I will say it looks way more balanced regarding width to hgt. It made it 68" wide in lieu of the stock 64"

I'm running 2"spacers on the front and 2.5"on the back. I've aways run spacers on my offroad toys. I just like the extra stability and handling. As long as tight trails aren't an issue you shouldn't have any problems.

Thanks for the info……I am a desert rider so there are very few trails for a SXS that wouldn't be wide enough for me to ride on…..

I just changed my wheels to a 2"offset on each side and love it
It was alot less expensive to put spacers on than to buy 2 new sets of rims. (Desert tires & sand tires)

Why did you put the wider spacers in the back?
The car will track & corner way better if the front is a tad bit wider than the rear.

I already had 2.5" so I bought some 2" thats why their not the same all around. As far as putting the wider in the back I just figured it was better. I guess my thought was the ass would slide around corners better. I don't know.

next time you go out riding, switch them up and see if you like it better.

So your going to run 2" spacers AND offset rims?
You might be fine but I would be a little nervous. That's a lot of leverage on the hub and spindle with it being that far out. I have ran my Teryx that was 68" total with a +5 LT kit for years. It was an excellent set up. There a +4 Mav kit that makes it 72" so maybe it will work.
