    Need info on lift install

    Hey I ordered a 2 inch lift today from Super ATV for my 2015 570. I have read here some have used a spring compressor and some have not for the install. Do I need to get one? If so do you think an automotive one will work (thinking of loaner one at auto parts store) or will I need a smaller one for motorcycles. Are there any other tips that can be provided before I start on this? Thanks!

    Have never installed a lift so no help here. Be patient and hopefully someone will give some advice soon. If not try a google search and a YouTube search. Good luck.

    You don't have to have one, but I HIGHLY recommend it. Its soooo much easier to rent one from NAPA or another auto parts store. You can do the ratchet strap method, (we have an instructional video on youtube), but it always scares the crap out of me. I've done it twice and its a little intimidating when you have to pop that ratchet strap open. My .02, rent the spring compressor. Its cheap and easy. Again, that's just me personally... -Erik the forum guy from SuperATV.

    I have used the ratchet straps for a few years and had no problems except for a gash in my right hand that required 6 stitches.
    That was my fault for being in a hurry.
    Just make sure you think things through and keep you hands away from the locking slots on the pivots when you release them.
    Or just rent a spring compressor.

    Here's a link to the instructions: https://www.superatv.com/amfile/file...roduct_id/826/
    Here's a link to the ratchet strap instructional video:
    - Remember...I'd still highly recommend renting a spring compressor over using the ratchet strap method.
