There are a few common issues with the Mule 4010 and Mule 3010 suspension.
- You cannot install taller tires without lifting the front-end.
- Many common lift kits (from big-name companies or from guys on Ebay) are designed and built in a fashion that causes them to bend or collapse while in use.
- Some lift kits use a round tube or are made from a plastic block that encloses the top of the strut, which retains dirt and causes premature strut-bearing failure
- Adding weight to these machines typically causes the front-end to droop, requiring a front lift kit or stiffer springs (and stiffer springs cause a very rough ride)
Thunderhawk's patent-pending design creates the strongest, most reliable front lift kit available for the full-size Mules. This Thunderhawk Performance front lift kit uses a lift block that is manufactured using our exclusive torque-box design with four opposing risers. This Thunderhawk design will not bend or collapse under load like other common designs and does not retain debris around the strut bearing that causes bearing failures. This Thunderhawk design has been thoroughly tested and has been in service since 2005, with thousands sold since then. Thunderhawk manufactures our lift blocks right here in the USA from 3/16" steel (not thinner 1/8" steel or plastic like others), and we fixture weld all pieces to assure accurate dimensions for ease of installation.
If you simply need extra clearance in the front of your Mule for taller tires, or to compensate for the addition of heavy accessories (such as cab enclosures or a snow plow), then this Front Lift Kit (leveling kit) is the solution. If you want to upgrade to 25" or 26" tires, this lift kit will provide the necessary tire clearance while retaining acceptable driveline geometry. If you have added weight to your Mule and it is riding low in the front-end, then this lift kit will raise the front-end 2" to provide a level appearance and re-gain the ground clearance that was lost.
