I would start at 1.75" spacers being you have so much weight on the buggy. Hell you might wanna start at 2" long spacer. Also it's better to use 2" pvc couplings. They are thicker and stronger.

Yah, your 570 has same struts as my midsize 800. (the 400/500 had different part numbers for some reason?) Get yourself some 2" pvc couplers. a stick of 2" pipe, and a stick of 1-1/2 DWV pipe and then find my thread i made about lifts. That oughta give ya a good starting point. Its easy in the front and cheap. The back is a little tougher if ya aint got any good tools or a spring compressor but it can be done!

Yeah wes a lift will work but he needs more spring rate with the extra weight
