i just got my new mudlite xtr's on ss212 on my 04 sportsman.i love them no more hard steering! i went with 26's instead of stock 25's. i was told theyd rub. but they they rub more than i thought! can i turn the shocks up to help, or maybe us spring spacers, or do i need a 2' lift? i really dont want to lift it. does anyone know if a leveling kit would help and where i can find one? i remember reading in this forum about somebody making ther own leveling kit but cant find it. so if you read this please tell me how you did it.

You could run 1" wheel spacers to move the tires away from the shocks. Also, if the fronts are wider than stock, you have to be careful the tires don't rub the outer tie rod ends.

yeah, i would go with wheel spacers if you dont want to lift. turning the shocks up or a spring spacer really wont help your rubbing issue.

i agree with everything rotaxdave said

so wheel spacers will keep it from rubbing the fender flare, cause thats all i can tell thats rubbing. are 2" lifts really all that bad? cause ive been told that it will put stuff like drive shafts are other components in a bind or make them where qicker?

www.highlifter.com They are for 05-08 models and are designed to be used with a 2" lift lit.A 2" lift alone should cure your problem without the forward a-arms but they are good to have if you plan to run 30"-31" tires and install gorilla axles or something similar.
