Hey everyone I just ordered some CFM lowering kits for my 700.
Can't figure out why there taking so long to get here. Anyway! It was kinda a spontaneous thing I got one for the front and rear (non adjustable) Wondering if anyone had much experience with em. Hopefully it will help with my rolling issues.... :confused: Their just to get me by until I can afford A-arms/shocks (Year or 2?)

Anyway fill me in and I will share what I think if I ever get them!

Did you already flip the rear link to lower rear end.

Works great & its free. try search. if not just pull rear link, bottom shock bolt & the other 2 bolts, roll it over and bolt back up.

I wouldnt flip the link.
I flipped mine and had to do a little machining to get things to clear.
Once they did clear the thing still rode like a rock even with the spring cranked all the way out.
It changes the geometry of the suspension in a way so that it rides like a rock.
Flipped it back over a couple weeks ago and love it again.

Just my 2 cents

Are you sure the lowering kit you bought isn't CRJ. Anyway if that front lowering kit moves the bottom of your shocks outward its going to make your shocks alot stiffer. And those type of kits usally move around. The lowering kit Rockymountain sells is a one peice bar that moves the top of your shocks out & up. But it only lowers front 7/8 of an inch. Plus its Not as stiff as moveing bottom of shock out. Hope this helps.

Is yours a 700 or 660. 660's need work to flip link. 700's don't. and mine rides smooth and soft. great for the sand.

I put the Crj lowering kit on mine and flipped the rear link... No problems after 2 years but the front does ride stiff with the lowering kit. Rappy sits at a very nice rideable height.
