2.5 lift on my 91 yj
Well noticed my rear passenger leaf spring is unrolling from the I hole. So decided to look at the rough country 2.5 suspension lift. What are your thoughts?:thumbsup:

Use the search function and look at what the general sentiment on the RC lifts are from actual users on the forum. I don't have nor have I experienced this, but the opinions are pretty strong on these lifts. I would tell you straight out, but I don't want to ruin your surprise or ruin the plot to your reading.

Save your money and look at BDS, OME or Rubicon Express. You get what you pay for in a lift kit no matter what height and the RC is rough in a YJ and have from time to time had some issues. I bought my RC lift through Morris 4X4 and they handled my warranty issues right away no questions asked just sent pics of a sagging leaf spring. New one on the doorstep 3 days later.

The ride quality and long lasting arched springs is what you are looking for. And yes I know how much a good kit costs and you really only want to do this mod once.

I run a 2.5" RC lift. It's ok, but I dont DD it and I havent tried others. It rides softer than my buddies 84 K5 blazer 6.2 Diesel with 3/4ton suspension, but that's not saying much.

The 2.5 lift gave me about 3.75". If/when they wear out I will be looking at BDS, might even go up to 4" springs and dump the rear beaver teeth.

Unless you are on an extremely tight budget, avoid RC. I got the RC 2.5 when I was 15 because I was on a tight budget and wanted the immeidate satisfaction. Worst decision I made on the jeep. It lifted more than 2.5" which led to other necesary changes that I hadnt planned on needing, and it rides like crap. Flex is ok, but I would highly recommend getting a different lift.

I have a 2.5 RC lift of my 93 YJ with 31 stt's and I like it. Its my DD and i haven't really ran into to many issues with the lift, the issues i am having are with the rust. Yea it rides a little ruff, but my mom drove it for a winter and never complained once about it.

Hmmm, thanks for the info guys! I plan upgrading later to 4 or 6 down the road, after turbo/cam/headers etc!

I have an rc 2.5 inch lift. I think it works fine. I have fine tuned the shackle bolt torque to make it softer. With extreme body mods I am running 36 inch tsl s with it.

My ideal future lift will be 0" lift alcan stretched springs running soa.

Pics of mine in my build thread.

Btw I daily drive and off-road my yj.

The time now is 02:59 PM.
