Complete Kits to Upgrade your Side by Side/UTV

Earlier this month, shared the important components to consider when purchasing a long travel kit. Today, we offer more insight into the complete kits available from one of our top vendors, HCR Racing.



HCR Racing precision cuts their products with laser and CNC machines in order to match the characteristics of stock suspension with the geometry of the new suspension. All of the measurements are verified [1] “to ensure no binding or interference. All products are hand TIG welded by seasoned craftsmen. No kits are released to the public without numerous hours of vigorous testing.”


HCR uses Chromoly, a stronger but lighter type of steel, to craft the components for their long travel kits. Chromoly [1] “goes through several processes and is hardened for better wear resistance and overall strength.” HCR also utilizes top of the line axles that are designed by RCV Performance. 

For over 60 years, RCV Performance operates as a family-owned company providing [2] “CV axles and other high-performance drive line components for the automotive, truck, and bus industries.” They employ off-road enthusiasts from all walks of life who understand the off-roading culture and know what it takes for a side by side/UTV to survive in the “hard core off-road environments” where the products will be used. 

The following long travel kits are designed by the best and built with high quality materials to ensure they outlast the tough and rough conditions of the off-roading experience.
