GROUND CLEARANCE VS TIPPY

LIFT KIT VS. MORE OFFSET

DW FAN WRITES IN: “I have a 2017 Polaris RZR 570 that is used mainly for back country fishing. I installed a 2-inch lift kit to handle the trails that I have to use to get to the best fishing spots. But after tipping it over once and almost two other times I am rethinking the lift kit. Or maybe installing wheel spacers. But I would like to stay at or near 50 inches for the narrow trails I ride. Boss, do you have any advice or a better solution than the lift kit?” – Victor Robert, Libby, MT

OUR PRO ANSWER: A 2-inch lift kit can affect your stance because it moves your tires inward about 1.75”. Not what you want for stability. I would remove the 2-inch lift kit. RZR 570s are tippy enough as it is. Try this: 26-inch tires that are wider than stock on +2” offset 14-inch rims, remove the sway bar, and upgraded shocks with increased preload. This should put you near 51 inches wide and much more stable with decent ground clearance.
