1 1/2" Spacers

Thinking of getting the Highlifter 1 1/2" spacers to widen the stance of my Kodiak, I am guessing this would add to the stability.

Can anyone else that's done this comment on the increased stability of the machine? In the end, was it worth doing?

1" inch aluminum billet spacers at all four corners works awesome. 1.5" sure would be interesting

Thanks Vincent, do they make it feel more stable on the off camber stuff?

With 1.5", I would think you will get accelerated bearing wear.

Took the plunge and ordered a set from Ebay, they're 1 1/2" ones made by Hdmoffroad.
