Well like it says that its a 4.5 inch lift but over a real short time it sags below that, to where you may have 3-3.5 inches of lift



all AAL's tend to sag in time, i just heard that RC sags quickly

I Have a 3" Rough County. I never heard anything about saging, but mine still sits a little above 3". It performs well offroad it was just real hard to put in. I'd say one of the most dificult. If you plan on doing it yourself be sure to have someone with you that has installed a lift before. Oh and with a 4.5" you will probably get a new leaf pack for the rear and HUGE front springs!
