2'' Wheel spacers HELP

Okay i just bought a 2010 Teryx and it has 2" wheel spacer on front and back. The steering is horrible! i was wondering is there anything i can do to help the steering out any without getting the long arm kit. I dont do any hard riding or anything, Its jus for joy riding maybe a little mudding. alignment or anything? If you can jus put in you input it will be very helpful. Thanks. I know the long arm kit is the way to go but for what i do with it i dont kno if it will be worth it.

Take off the fronts or sell the front 2" and get smaller ones.

2 inch spacers

If you like the wider look and have an extra set of rear wheels, you can leave the 2 inch spacers on and run rear wheels on all 4 corners. It brings the overall offset in about an inch on the front and it will steer better. I went thru the same thing, It was bad with the spacers, Putting rears on all 4 corners made it corner way better and it looked great, but in the end, I just took all the spacers off. I didn't trust them.

2" wheel spacers

Yea i might end up taking the them off then. If i decide to leave them on will it damage or put wear on anything besides the tires.

Not knowing what size tires you have it's hard to say. If they are not that big, just take them off. You probably don't need them.

If you have huge tires, try a power steering kit. It's quite a bit cheaper than the long travel kit.
