Need Your Opinion!

I am sure i am going with a rough country 4.5" lift for my xj. With that said i was curious which 4.5" kit to go with. They have the basic 4.5" complete kit and then they have the x-series 4.5" complete kit. As far as i can see the x series kit looks like the way to go but i was curious what the atvantage to having a drop pitman arm and the x flex upper and lower control arms Those two things and the quick disconects seem to the only difference in between them. So, if you could give me your opinion i would be grateful.

Thanks

The X series also comes with full replacement leafs and an adjustable trac-bar. Don't use the drop pitman arm though as it will change the angle of the drag-link without changing the angle of the trac-bar and causing bumpsteer.

With either kit I was going with full leafs so that's not a problem and the adjustable trac bar is needed anyway. But is it worth the extra money for the x series kit? Do the x flex control arms make a lot of difference?

If you are going to use it offroad they are worth it, but if it will spend 95% of the time on the road I would say no.
