I saw on cf moto fb page someone had used this lift kit on their zforce. I was wondering if anyone on here had used it and maybe some advice on installing it. I am thinking of trying it out just want to make sure I do it right

Works well on a EX model. Not for use on a trailer, causes to many things to bind and harsh ride.

Look on the forum for RZR lift. It will help you out.

I installed this.  You will have to do some cutting of the brackets as they are too long.  If you don't have a way to do this there is an easier bracket lift it there that will bolt right in but i think it's $160.

Wow! Hefty price, but at least you wouldn't have to do any more extra cutting.

I have tried this lift as well. The trouble comes in the rear. No clearance for shock mounts.

I didn't have a problem with clearance of any mounts, I did have to cut a small notch in the end of the Aarm tube because it was very close to the bottom of the strut where the spring sits but it didn't affect structural integrity

I would like to get a little more information on this.  Perhaps a picture or two.  I really want a lift kit for my Z but unfortunately Smithfield Powersports is closed for I don't know how long and I absolutely refuse to put one of those "puck" lifts on!  So any information would be greatly appreciated my friend.

front


rear


It's been a while since I did it but I had to cut the bottom off some of the brackets to get them to sit low enough to use the drilled holes. They should also be tac welded but I still haven't done that. On the rear the square tubing that sticks out towards the shock I ground away a bit. It actually may not even have been necessary, once the suspension settled it moved away a bit. I also may add another set of holes so I can adjust the lift about an inch lower and up my preload some. Right now my preload is all the way loose because it gave me more lift than I have wanted and I wanted soft suspension for rock crawling.

Dude, thank you very much!!  That put the nail in the coffin, that's the lift I'll buy.  It's very cheap compared to those damn pucks.  I can't believe how much they ask for those!!  Again, thanks!

Redrider were you short any bushings/spacers? I'm putting that same kit on mine but don't seem to have enough bushings/spacers?? There were 2 long and 2 short.  The long ones fit perfectly but there are only 2.
I suppose the RZR just has a different shock bushing size.

I wasn't short any bushings that I remember. It would probably fit on a Uforce its a very simple kit. as long as you have room on the a-arms to put the bracket and the shocks don't hit the a-arm after it should work. If you have a band saw to cut metal you could just make your own too.
