Hey interceptor you might be in luck, I was just looking on the High Lifter forum and saw a guy by the name of "Cutty" that has the same lift you are talking about. He has it on is 05 Grizz with 1" wheel spacers. So far he says is vary happy with it.
Well I was going to offer as well, glad you were able to make the arrangements.
The lift comes with good instructions individually bagged for each corner of the machine. Although it is not hard to install it does take a little time to complete it, also be sure to have a thin open in 1/2" wrench available for two of the front fasteners.
For info on tips I am slowly putting tech tips on NYROC's web site for the Grizzly. http://atv.dnsalias.com/
I want to run 27" or 28" tires. Would the lift kit be absolutely necessary ? I don't want to put any extra strain on the drive components if I don't have to. I am worried about putting the A- arms at a severe angle. Also, would you recommend a clutch kit with the oversize tires? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!
You can run 27's without a lift and most 28's also, only you may find that you will have to trim the black plastic on the fenders because it will most likely rub when the shocks are compressed. I am assuming that these will be on aftermarket wheels with a larger offset, if not then wheel spacers will be needed in the front so you don't rub at full turn.
Clutch kit will be needed with the larger tires, no question. And just the fact that you are putting a larger and more agressive tire on will be putting lots more strain on the CV joints, regardless of the angle. The 660 power, agressive spinning tires and traction equal stress.
