I know this sounds wierd, but when we ice race the lower to the ice we can make our Rhino the better. Has anyone ever lowered one and if so how? I can see where I can use a Raptor lowering kit to lower the front end 2-3". However the rear has an issue with the lowering kit interfering with the axle. Help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Randy

Shorter, stiffer springs, and probably limit straps to keep from over extending everything. This will reduce your travel, but for ice racing, that should not matter.

If you have a bed delete could you install a rear shock mount with different top mount locations? Racing on ice looks like a lot of fun!

Fox FLOAT air shocks. Let the air out and you'll crush cans, air them back up and hit the trails. You can even air down just one side for racing. Used to have them on my LT kit.

Welcome to the forums
Are you going to give Dayne a run for his money this year?

I like the limit strap idea for a fast, easy ultra cheap idea. It'll ride like hell, but shouldn't be TOO much an issue.

If you want to keep the travel, which you might for the front at least. Make a reverse version of the CFM 2" lift kit. Where the wings come out and then go up to get the drop you want.

Thanks to everyone. Have a great Christmas. I will put a finished product picture in the forum later.
Cheers
