Essex developed kits that will add 1 5/8" ( or3 to 4 inches w/ Surefoot tires) of lift, improved traction and stability to your bike. Essex springs are 40% stronger that stock Mule springs (90% for cab models). Essex replacement springs keep the nose of the Kawasaki Mule up and improve rider handling. This allows you to carry more sizeable loads in rough terrain without bogging down the Mule. Together the springs and Essex lift blocks provide 2" of additional front clearance and accomondate oversized tires. The easy to install kit retains the full movement of the strut and does not alter the camber angle. The extended rear shackles stiffen the leaf springs to improve clearance for the rear tires.
