Hi all,
I have 2014 outlander xt 500 and front springs are toast from plowing.

Anyone try the EPI heavy duty springs and if so how they work out?

Thanks!

There's gotta be someone out there that changed out their front springs to heavy duty ones. I need some help please :th_smiliepullhair:

I don't think anyone makes springs. I tried like heck to find stiffer front springs for my XMR and there's nothing on the market.

You probably need to look into the aftermarket shocks. :(

For anyone that cares about stiffer front springs I just put on some epi hd springs and wrote this review on the epi site.

They definitely are heavier duty than the stock springs. Lifted front end about an inch and quarter and are stiffer than stock. But my old springs were beat. They aren't as stiff as I was hoping but they are an improvement . With stock springs standing on front end would bury it now compresses about half way. I think they will be great for the plow which is why I bought them, just haven't tried the plow yet.

So anyone who thinks they don't make a hd spring for an outlander, get the epi hd. They are better for sure. And I haven't road on them yet, just got done.

Also just realized I have the adjustment on 2nd level on new springs and had it crank all way on old springs so I'm sure it will be better than I first thought.

I think most people just put in a simple spring spacer which tightens up the springs and is a lot cheaper than buying new ones
