Welcome to the site, Where are you in PA? A lot of the guys here are going with taller tires on the front and they say that it makes a huge difference. I`m still bone stock and fighting the same pushing condition you are but I`m working on building my dream home and that is where all my money is going. As soon as I can, I`m going with Maxxis (cheng shin) Razr 2 tires. Keep reading, alot of the guys on here swear by them. You will find all your answers here. Incredible group of people live on this site

The razr's will make all the difference, I perfer the 2's over the originals the knobs are taller. But u cant get 2's for the rear so I have the originals for the rear and they also make a huge difference in handleing. Some ppl on here have the sonic sway-bar system and say its the best mod there is, but I cant afford that so i dont know. Hope this helps!

Oh yea I adjusted my pre-load on my springs, (cause they were all the way soft) that helped out tons, didnt hurt the softness of the suspension at all. I went bout half way on the threads. Now she handles even better!

Even with the Razr 2 fronts it will push/plow at low speeds. That is the nature of any machine with IRS. But the Razr 2 will make a HUGE difference in handling/cornering, especially at higher speeds. The stock tires are really soft and they roll really bad in corners. The Razrs are definitely worth the $, in fact I believe the consesus here is that the Razr rear/Razr 2 fronts is the single best upgrade you can do for the money. As far as spacers in the front, I say no way. That only increases the load on the already soft front shocks and will affect handling in a bad way.

HMF Ballance QRS slip-on, HMF/Dobeck programmer, Velocity filter, EHS lid, Razr rear tires, 22" Razr 2 front tires, Pro Armor Fat Peg Nerfs, Pro Armor XC bumper, Fasst Flex Bars, Trail Tech billet logo clamp, PRM a-arm skids.
