5" Lift Kit not Level
 
Just installed my Rocky Top 5 Lift kit on my 2004 TXT front end only.
The rear end I purchased the HD leaf spring HD 5 lift.
The cart now sits about 2 inches lower in the rear vs the front
Do I also need to install the rear blocked that came with the lift kit ??
I'm confussed as I thought the spring would have given me the right height

How big would the blocks be that you did not install, about 2 inches ??

YA they are 2 " and they have longer shackles also. The cart now sit measured at the side just behind the front wheels 15" and 13" just in front of the rear wheels. But here is what I don't get if I would have used the stock springs with the blocks the cart would be sitting lower in the back also ???
Doesn't a 5" lift normally come with 5" blocks?

No, the majority of your "lift" comes when you swap the axle under the springs.

Did the kit come with instructions?
2" lower in the back but you have 2" blocks and longer shackles left over, hmmm.......

OK there where no instruction with the kit.
I left the new springs in the original position where bottom of the axel is on top side of the leaf (inside ) should I relocate the axel to the bottom side if the leaf spring? I'm all screw up I think ??

Can you post some pics of the rear lift installed? might need to put the rear under the springs but then I have heard comments that when used with HD springs it raises the rear more.

I've got the same 5' lift. With the stock springs flipped on top and the 2" blaocks it sits dead level and is still plenty strong for loads. I'm sure you were supposed to flip the spring location.

My Cart is a 2004 TXT
Ok so you see I did not put the axle on the bottom of the spring it is in the original stock postion (inside) as per the pic. These HD springs have lifted the rear but still need 2 inches for it to be level . The rear has these large housings that the U bolts fit through. So how would you put the axle on the under side of the springs as these housings are in the way ??:cry:
By the way thanks for the help guys!!!
