I have a set of outkast forward a arms on order, and I got to thinking about my turning radius once I install them. I have a 2015 900 crew. So with the front wheels pushed forward 2 inches, what will it do to the radius?

I did not measure mine but if their is any difference it is minor and not noticable. Some people install steering stops to prevent axle bind with these lifts, these will increase your turning radius noticably. I opted to use limit straps instead and recommend them highly as they prevent axle bind upon maximum droop and let you (at least on my 800) forgo steering stops.

You will lose a very slight amount of turning radius.....but as Larry mentioned, it is minimal and not very noticeable.

Thanks. What limiting straps did you use?

There is a link to the ones I bought in my signature. I would measure your shock length sitting on level surface (before or after lift, does not matter) and order straps just longer than that. Mine for the 800 where 16" long and they were perfect but the 900s may need different length ones.

Sorry that I did not see that in your signature. Thanks.

I put the Super ATV forward arms on my 2015 crew 900, and I'm here to tell you that with the steering stops your going to loose some steering. With that said you'll get used to it and start to drive accordingly. These crews are so long and low that you have to put bigger tires on them which requires forward a-arms. I would defiantly buy the super atv arms again, I just wish they made rear a-arms to match them.

You could put 2" wheel spacers. I put some on my razor 800 and it helped give me more turn radius. My inside part of my rims were rubbing against the A arms on the front end.
