calling all with bracket lifts and spring spacers

Just like the title says who's got them both? I have a extreme 2in lift and am wanting to put some 1in spring spacers in to take the sagging out of my springs and need to know from some people that has this to see if I need new axles. I know its going to make it ride like a brick but I don't mind it rough so what's yalls opinions. Don't realy want to buy highlifter springs yet so I want to try spacers first.

I know more than 1 person running those setups....DirtRoadRedneck has an Xtreme with 1" aluminum spring spacers on 32" backs....but hes got some big Turner size axles too. MadeInTx used to run a RDC with 2"pvc spacers (very rough) on stock axles with 31" laws and never broke, but he knew the value of thumb control. I used to have an Xtreme with Hl springs and 27" laws and I broke 2 stock rear axles before getting gorillas to go back there.....i ride hard. Then my bike grew up lol. Deadman Inc also has a bracket lift along with HL springs and 1" pucks on the rears....hes broken a couple of gorilla axles with 31s. It all just depends on how you ride.

Thanks. I will get some rhinos one day but I don't think it will be before the next big ride at Boggs and Boulders so guess I will just take a few extra rear axles every ride I go on until I save up for them.

A lift that consists of simple brackets used to relocate the shock mounting points therefore lifting the machine and giving it more ground clearance, as opposed to A-Arm lifts, which use new, longer A-Arms to gain lift of more then 4"

I run a 2" extreme with high lifters and 30" mudlites and never broke an axle. I'm not easy on my bike either. The tires just give up some traction due to there not overly aggressive. Just have to spin then fast. Got my eye on some law 2's or some monsters in the future , just haven't made up my mind yet.


I'd rather be riding instead I'm using tapatalk!

I honestly have only broke one axle the whole time I have had my brute and that was kinda my fault. **** stumps in twin ponds at red creek and was going way way to fast. Flipped me off the bike and and threw it on its side but at least I know my brute floats now lol.

U can see the rear of the bracket lift in the pic above. It is attached to the frame and top of the shocks. All a bracket lift really does is moves the shock mounts to gain lift.
