Teryx 4 Lift Kits

I am looking into buying a Catvos 3" lift kit. Is anyone currently running a lift kit on their Teryx4 that can give me some input? Should I go with the 3" Catvos, 2" highlifter, or is there anymore 2-3" lift out on the marker that are durable?

I have the 2" HL and so far it seems rock solid.

How much more of an angle are the axles? So does the highlifter lift pull your tires in any? Im running 29.5x12x12 outlaws and they rub just a little bit on the floor only when I turn at the maximum radius.

It pulls them in a bit but not much. I put spacers on mine to make up the difference but a lot of guys just leave em. I run 28x12x12 with no issues. Doesn't seem to add a whole lot of angle on the axles but some. They try to tell you to notch the frame for the boots but my friends and I left ours alone with no problems at all! As do most guys on here. Try (powersport junkie) for the best price!

I have 2" spacers all the way around right now but im still running the 12" factory rims. The offset on the rim may be why I am rubbing. I think I might look into getting the highlifter lift. I really liked the arched arms on the Catvos though. Have you guys seen any T4s in the mud with the catvos lift on them.

I personally haven't seen one but I do like the arched A-arms. May install one down the road but the highlifter was so cheap and EASY to install made it easy to choose!

Mine rubs also on full left turn. Even with the lift. It rubs a nub that sticks out. Have seen others heat that nub up and push it in.

I heated mine up and cut it right off. Then heated up some plastic, molded it in place and riveted it on. Turned out sweet! I've seen it catch that nub and rip a big ass hole in the firewall. Tomanytoys can tell ya bout that. Save yourselves a big headache and just get it gone!

True dat about the nub! I have HL 2" lift and just put on 29.5 x 11 x 14 outlaw 2's with 1" spacers cause I think the tires would be ripping and tearing the floorboard without them.

Stock wheels and a lift kit is like stilettos and sweatpants, doesn't really make sense or look right.

What all comes with the gorrilla lift?

Slick-- the 3" gorilla lift you are referring to is it the stage one gorilla lift. Did it actually give you 3" of lift? The website shows that it will give you 1.5" to 3" of lift.

yes it is the stage one and it actually gave it 3" , i was worried about the 1.5" to 3" as well when i was reading about it on there site so i called them and they said they have that on there site because it is different on several models but the t4 was 3" when i measused the before and after it was 3 in the front and 2 3/4 in the back , the brackets that come with it mount on top of the shocks the only thing you have to do is drill a hole in the back where it mounts to the frame , it took about 30 mins to install very easy , hope this is some help

I went with the Catvos and 30" backs. Little over priced and I'm not a fan of the rear coil spacers but ride quality still seems great and boy do I have some ground clearance now with the arched a-arms. If I could go back I would prob just do a bracket lift but I'll settle with what i got
