Spend the extra money on a quality lift. I am happy with my 4" lift and had to go after the warranty on a rear spring sagging 2" but that is all good. Pics to the folks at Morris passed on to RC shipped the next day no more questions asked. I added 1" booms and the ride quality went way up. So its you dime and youer Jeep. I wished I had researched more.

I did get new brake lines as well. My biggest fear on the trail first time was breaking one but the one I bought at full flex look good. I carry the old stock lines as trail spares along with a bottle of brake fluid.

You and I both. I jumped the curb for the rc lift without doing research. Within 6 months my pass. side sagged 1-1.5". RC replace that side no problem. I had this lift on my jeep almost 2 yrs now. I added 1" boomerang shackles last spring also. All is well now except my driver side is .5-1" lower now, but thats understandable cause I'm the only one thats in it I guess. I will however replace these springs with something better when taxes return since I now knw whats out there.

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.

everything about RC springs I have read on many forums has been negative... personally I will never buy anything from Rough Country. My suggestion is purchase some OME or BDS springs and leave the sagging Rough Country springs alone. Even the posts in this threads are saying stay away... Not sure how much clearer a picture you need...

So far I love my 4" N2.0 kit. I used M.O.R.E. HD 5/8" lift boomerang shackles. It rides and flexes great! I haven't even installed the TC drop yet as I have a 1" motor mount lift to help with driveline angles. No nasty vibes so far but I've only got about 75 miles on it. The front has settled down to where my boomerang shackle's bolts line up from top to bottom but the rear is still riding about .5in higher. That could just be because I haven't installed the hardtop or spare tire yet so there is no weight back there. That should even things out. The kit went together quite well. I didn't like the bump stock extension brackets....I would love to get rid of those and install longer bump stops. I just hate the look of it. The shocks, brake lines, and hardware all seem to be great quality. Time will tell on the springs. It's going to be wheeled hard. I bought from eBay so I hope they honor my warranty. This has got me thinking that I need to call RC now and confirm my warranty registration.
