Default Upgrade from A-arm to Long Travel - Installation Questions

I have a 2008 CC Precedent with the 6Ē All Sports A-arm lift. Iíve just had my 3rd failure of the front suspension in about 3 years, so I think itís time to upgrade to a long travel lift. Full disclosure, I use this cart to run around my farm, so it is always off road..but nothing too hard core (I know it's not a UTV ). The first two failures were the sameÖthe front leaf spring broke (Broken front leaf spring Allsport lift kit). This last failure is a little more catastrophic in that the bracket between the frame rails has broken where the suspension attaches. Itís kind of hard to explain, but the leaf spring is sandwiched between two heavy plates, and this top plate mounts to this bracket that has broken.

Anyway, Iím assuming (hoping) that an upgrade to a long travel suspension will be more robust for my day to day usage on the farm. Iím looking at the All Sports and the Jakeís long travel kits. Online, those appear to cost about the sameÖwithin $100, especially when factoring in shipping. From what Iíve read, All Sports comes mostly put together while the Jakeís is in pieces (for what that is worth). I was able to find the All Sports installation instructions (http://www.americanliftkits.com/cont...avel%20CCP.pdf) but the installation instructions link on Jakes website is broken (Iíve e-mailed them but havenít heard back).

Questions:
-It looks like the All Sports kit comes with the replacement bracket that is currently broken (see Step 2 in the instructions above). Does the Jakeís kit provide a similar bracket?
-Does anyone have a copy of the Jakeís installation instructions and/or experience installing either one of these? Iíd like to get an idea of what this entails compared to the All Sports.
-From a robustness standpoint, does either one of these lifts perform better than the other? Iím less concerned about a super smooth ride. Or adjustable height. Or track width.

At this point, Iím leaning toward the All Sports simply because the installation seems pretty straightforward and it appears like I would get the replacement bracket that I need. Thoughts?

Default Re: Upgrade from A-arm to Long Travel - Installation Questions

I just installed the Jake's kit on a 2003 TXT. It came with paper instructions, but I didn't use them. I found a great installation video on youtube. I just followed along and paused when needed. It does come in pieces, but was very easy to install.
