Info/Tips on Installing a Long Travel kit

First time installing a long travle kit on 08 700 Rhino. Im ready to install a XMF +6 long travel kit. Can anyone toss me some tips before I begin? Any specific measurement on the toe in toe out setting? First time Rhino owner and first time wrenching on it. Need to learn to install so i can learn how to fix it if it breaks.

XMF are great peeps. I talked to them quite a bit while trying to set mine up. They suggested 1 or 2 degrees negative camber and to run the toe at about 1/4" in. And do like says above... wear gloves and i used an old towel to do my axles on so i could just wad it up and throw it away....

Thanks guy for the info...hmmm has anyone done a video on changing the axles?

Any other special tools I will require besides the 8mm and 10mm sockets to take the Rhino apart?

You talking about the spindles? The shock bolts are 14mm on one end and 17 on the other. No special tools really. A vise helps out alot with the axles. i did mine with leaving the outer CV in the hub when doing it.
