Yep! They slid that one on the website before letting me know. 馃ぃ馃ぃ I don't have the exact travel numbers, but I'd assume you'll get around 1.5" more travel than stock with the stock shocks. I think the kit without the stock shocks and shock brackets....and go with those longer bandit shocks or that other ## brand (mentioned somewhere in this forum) would give you more actual wheel travel with the longer shocks. Its pretty awesome. All brand new. New arms, tie rods, includes EVERYTHING in the one kit...pretty sweet kit.

Here;s a link to check it out: Kawasaki Teryx 3" Long Travel Kit | SuperATV

The kit is advertised as +3 inches but states nothing of height gain. Does it have more ground clearance with the new LT kit? If so, how much? Should buyers expect to buy another lift kit or expect to use longer shocks with the brackets? I'm asking cause the Kawi 'S' model gains travel and width but no ground clearance increase. My teryx had clearance issues when getting around our trails up here.
You would gain ground clearance with the high clearance front and rear arms, but the body height would be the same as stock. This kit is designed to work with your stock shocks...without having to adjust anything. 100% bolt up and go. If you wanted to.......you could get longer shocks and do away with the long travel shock brackets...and you'd squeeze out a little more wheel travel. With the included shock brackets, you wouldn't be able to run another lift on top of it........unless you went with longer shocks attached to the frame locations and didn't use the shock brackets in the kit.
I would be interested in knowing if it provides any lift assuming you keep the preload on the stock shocks the same. The site does say it allows 30" tires but not sure if that is only because the arms are presumably offset.
This kit comes with upper shock brackets so obviously can't use the typical SuperATV lift in conjunction with it, and would be surprised if any of the a-arm bracket lift kits would work either.
No body lift. Just the added ground clearance from the arched arms and the forward offset...allowing for the bigger tires.

Thanks for the information. Do you have any suspension travel numbers?
Looks like you're getting about 1.5" with the stock shocks front and rear. I'm going off some rudimentary testing notes I found in my prints vault. I'd guess its more like 1" more in the front and 1.5" more in the year for a more standard travel addition. If you were to go with longer shocks and discarded the stock shock brackets you'd get more. I'm betting the OEM S length shocks would be perfect. Or maybe some of those 814's that a lot of guys are using on their Teryx. For awhile there were guys using our 6" lift kit with those 814 shocks (discarding the lift brackets), and getting a cool mid-travel lift out of it. There were some threads in here about it, but I haven't stumbled on them yet. I bet they would make an awesome addition to this kit.
