I’m not certain, but when I briefly looked into them to help my ride quality, I believe install requires the use of a spring compression tool. If so, should be able to rent one from the local auto parts store.

Interested in hearing how your ride quality is once installed

I installed 20x10x10 AT tires and I they rub occasionally. I do not want to lift it but I like the aggressive look and was trying to bring it up a little bit. I had one inch spacers on it for increased stance but that really didnt work.

I tried the spring compression tool and it didnt work. I have 12 inches of clearance and the travel on these is only 4 inches. with the shock being 18 inches long this still leaves me with 2 inches to go. One if i stand on the axle.

Have you tried putting the cart on jackstands so the front springs/shocks will drop down further? You didn't mention if the wheels are on the ground or in the air.
