I also have the 4" version, about 6 or 8 months old. The new shocks seem to work pretty well, but I'm already seeing some sag in the springs. Mine rides pretty rough, although I really don't have anything to compare it to.
Ive had mine a month.So far so good.I have the 4" lift wth 31s. I kept my 31s because they only had 5000 miles on them. it was rough but is now settling in good. smoothed out a lot when i took the track bars off. cant tell a difference when driving except a smoother ride. Havent been able to really test it out yet. Waiting to put my posi-lock in which will be this week.
I have had the new(er) RC 2" lift kit on for about 18 months. I have not noticed any sag. Shocks seem fine. I run 31" tires and stock front shackles and Warrior (no lift) rear. The Warrior front shackles didn't work well (could not get the spring eye into them. I plan to go with Boom (as little lift as possible) in the spring. I am very happy with the RC 2" kit
The kit is amazing!!! i got mine on yesterday!!! didnt have any problems, easy install too.... i have .5in greasable shackles in the front.... rides the same if not better than stock!!! all in all right now i love the lift!
Should be ordering this in january and every time I check a review its from 2010 or older. Nice that someone started up a thread with the N2.0.
Anyone have this lift with out the SYE? hows the highway ride at 50+ any vibs? My baby is my DD so as well as ripping up the trails on the family farm i need it to be able to get me to work and back everyday cruisin at around 75. Probably not gonna go any bigger than 33's till i get a new DD, but im married so thats never gonna happen haha
I had a horrible experience with Rough Country. I bought their 4" kit around 5 years ago and within a year the springs had sagged so much that the rear shocks bottomed out over a dip on the highway, one shock came off and fell forward, dragging on the pavement until I stopped and realized what had happened. It had ripped the upper mount clean off. I measured the distance from the bump stops to the "extenders" they give you to bolt onto the axle and it was at most 2". That being said, the springs were so stiff that I only bottomed out a few times that I can recall. I called them and got 4 new springs as warranty replacements and when they got here I was charged $150 cash on delivery for shipping fees, after being told that they would take care of it. I sold the springs and never looked back. Overall, a horrible experience. In the Jeep aftermarket industry, you almost always get what you pay for.
Spend an extra $200 and get BDS or OME or RE. You get what you pay for. If you dont mind swapping springs yearly RC might not be to bad but me I personally dont like doing that. BDS has a lifetime no questions asked warranty. You will never need it though. I love my BDS springs the ride great and flex great. You can also get fox 2.0 Jeep valved shocks from them that I hear are awesome. I plan to get a set soon as they didnt have them when I got my springs from them. You get what you pay for when it comes to suspension components. Do it right or repeatedly do it over. You cant compare YJ leafs to TJ coils. Its apples to oranges.

[QUOTE=Overhead;17658665]this is also my second set of RC springs this year. I'd rather spend the money again and get something that will last.[/QUOTE]

Whether or not you get vibes is going to depend on the individual install, not necessarily the lift spring manufacturer. You need: good transmission mounts, good yokes, a balanced driveshaft, good u-joints, and the correct pinion angle. All of those things can be adjusted/fixed to eliminate vibes, in most cases. Install the lift, drive the Jeep and see if you get any vibes.
Some Jeeps can be lifted 2-3" without needed any further mods, others may need different shims, a t-case drop, motor mount + body lift, or even a SYE/CV driveshaft combo. Just be prepared to do further mods to eliminate any vibes.
