Hey everybody. Today I’m going to show you how super quick and easy it is to install our SuperATV 2″ lift on this Polaris Ranger Midsize 570. Let’s jump right in.
Remove all four wheels and tires. Then pull down on the strap for the hood on both sides. Next, flip the hood up and prop it up out of the way. You can remove the hood if you like, but it’s just a little bit easier to prop it up so you can see everything.
Get two wrenches, or a wrench and a socket, and loosen the nut that’s securing the shock to the frame. One thing to keep in mind is that if you are using a ratchet, make sure you set it to the “on” position.
Once it’s loose, you can take your socket off and wrench it the rest of the way off. When it gets close to coming off, grab the the hub so it doesn’t just drop out on you. When the nut’s off, let it come down gently.
Now that the shock’s disconnected from the frame, remove the stock grommet and put it right on top of the new spacer just like that. Thread this screw out to right about there, then start threading it onto the factory stud, and make sure it goes all the way down like this. Then take this stud and thread it down. Grab the hub and slide the shock into place. Take the top grommet and slide in in so that the rounded side is going down towards the rounded side on the frame. Put the washer in place like that. Get our nut started on there, and then fully tighten the nut as tight as you can get it.
Yours should look just like this with the spacer sitting all the way up against the top of the spring. The grommet is going up inside of the frame, and you have a grommet on top of a washer and then your nut on top.
Let’s head to the rear and get the rears pulled out. First, remove the top shock bolt. Then grab the lower A-arm and pick up on it a little bit while you pull the bolt out. Remove the lower shock bolt and remove the shock.
Now we’re going to use the spring compressor. If you don’t have a spring compressor, there are a few different ways you can compress the spring. We highly recommend that you use a compressor, though. It’s the safest way of doing this.
Take the lower side of the shock where you can make adjustments, and stick it into the compressor like this and tighten it up so it can’t move. Slide the compressor arms in to hold the spring and then start pulling the compressor down. Make sure the arms are seated properly on your spring. Then compress it down. While you’re compressing it, keep your head and hands out of the way in case the spring comes off here. You don’t want to get hit by it.
Get it down to where you can take the retainer out then continue compressing it. As you’re compressing just watch the arms to make sure they’re still seated properly. Compress it down pretty tight so you can get this spacer in there and slide the retainer back into place. Then let off the spring compressor. Remove the arms and it should look just like this. The beveled end goes down inside of the spring and the side that has the big dip in it goes toward the spring retainer.
Now reinstall the shock on the machine. It goes back on the same way it came off. Get the upper shock mounting point lined up and put your bolt through. Then get the lower lined up and put the bolt through. Get both nuts started before fully tightening.
Once it’s fully tightened, repeat these steps for the opposite side, and reinstall all the wheels and tires. That’s how super quick and easy it is to install SuperATV’s two-inch lift on this Polaris Ranger Midsize 570.
