The first step is to remove all four wheels and tires.
Then we’re gonna head over to the driver’s side and remove our shock from the upper mount. Then you’re gonna want to grab two bolts, two spacers, two nuts, and two front brackets. We’re gonna get the brackets installed.
So on the rear of the shock bracket, this bracket right here is gonna sit just like this, with the two holes facing downward. And then for this side, the bracket is gonna lay in there just like this. Put the two holes sitting down. The main thing is, you just want to make sure that this front bracket is to the inside of the shock mount and the rear one is to the outside of the shock mount.
You want to take your bolt and get it started. You can just let that bracket hang for a second. Grab your spacer, slide it over the bolt here, and make sure that this bracket is oriented properly. Then we’re gonna grab our front bracket, slide it into position. Start it all the way through. We’re gonna put a nut on it.
Grab your other bolt and we’ll do the exact same process. Get the rear-most bracket bolt started first, take your spacer, slide the spacer in there, and take this other bracket, lift it into place. Line up the bolt, stick it through, and you’ll grab your nut. Then you’ll wanna fully tighten the bracket hardware and then repeat the same steps for the opposite side.
The next step is going to be to adjust your shock right here. It’s on the softest setting. You’re gonna want to crank your shock with your shock tool all the way up to the highest setting.
You’re going to want to grab your shock adjustment tool that’ll be located in your factory tool kit. I’m just gonna slide it into one of the notches on the shock.
Once you have your shock adjusted, you’re gonna go ahead and reinstall your shock to your machine. If you wanna get the maximum amount of lift, you’re gonna use the inner-most holes. The outer-most hole is gonna be the lowest lift.
Once you have your shock in place, you’re gonna go through, fully tighten all your hardware, and then repeat all these steps for the opposite side.
Moving onto the rear, the first thing we’re going to do is disconnect the sway bar link. Then we’re gonna remove our upper shock bolt. As you can see, the brackets are the same for both sides, so we’re gonna grab two brackets.
We’re gonna go over to our hardware pack, grab two spacers, two nuts, and two bolts. The rear-most bracket will be oriented like this, then the bracket towards the front of the machine will go on the outside of the shock mount. Slide a bolt through, grab a spacer, slide the bracket onto the bolt, then start a nut.
Then we’re gonna go ahead and put a bolt through the rear bracket. It’s going to be oriented with the threads facing towards the rear. Reach back through here and slide the spacer into place. Put the bolt through both sides, then we’re gonna start a nut.
Then we’re gonna go ahead and fully tighten the bracketry. Reinstall our shock, then repeat the steps for the opposite side.
Reinstall your sway bar links and all four wheels and tires, and that’s how super easy it is to install SuperATV’s 3″ lift kit on this Polaris Ranger 900.

Hello, and thanks for checking in! Ultimately, this is all up to personal preference and how much ride quality you’re willing to sacrifice to get additional lift. The more you crank the shocks down and compress the springs, the stiffer the ride will be.
