HD Rear Springs for Me???

I have an '05 with a fair amount of after market parts (weight) on it. I ride double a lot, and always have a decent weight tool box in the bed. Sometimes I also have a dead deer or two in the bed also or some other dead weight.

My Rhino seems to sag pretty good already, then quite a bit more when it's loaded down. I'm considering HD rear springs. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar situation (sagging) and tried them? How did they work for you?

Thanx in advance!

Me and my dad put the Hunterwork HD springs on the stock shocks and it seems to work good. I set mine as soft as they go and I think it carries the weight better and ride nicer too.

I'll talk to him and see, that would be a lot of fun to ride with some other rhinos. Just finished a trailer to haul the 2 Rhino's so perfect excuse.

Did you do the spring mod to a stock shock or the sport edition shock? I need to do the same.

I have done the HD springs on the stock shock. I ride trails all the time 5-10 mph and I do not have a problem with them, I like mine. I think the key is to put the ride height on the shock setting as low as it will go and remove the swaybar. Removing the swaybar lets each shock work by itself (no push or pull of the other A-arm). I used the tool from from Hunterworks, but got the spings from https://www.erlandsonperformance.com...ry_Code=Yamaha I dont think the swap could be done very easy with out the tool.
