Good point. Thanks for the help!

You could get the springs. Make some sort of Tcase spacer. It cant be that hard, hell a bunch of washers would work. And I think you would be fine. I have a 4" Skyjacker lift and I run a tcase drop. Im about 90% sure I have stock brake lines also. But then you would look stupid running around with small tires and what not.

If i were you, i'd buy something to replace all four springs at once. It sounds like you do not want a lift, but just to get it back running. That would be the easiest.

Well my predicament is that I eventually want a lift in the jeep (hopefully by June-July if I get the $$ saved up) and the RC 4" lift was the lift I actually wanted, so I don't want to drop hundreds of dollars on just stock springs only to turn around and get rid of them for the lift kit.

...By the way, I currently have 31" tires on the vehicle which I would probably run with a 4" lift anyway until I can afford to move up to 33's

Being a college student sucks sometimes lol

There is a very long thread with RC's people in it explaining and tring to actually fix the problems that they are having. I personally have never bought any RC products but their support on the forum is a really nice thing to have and I wouldn't hesitate buying anything from them. They even sent a few members new parts!

Ok man then this is a no brainer. Save the money and buy the kit. Dont piece it together. You would probably pay more and have no warranty.

And i feel you on the college thing. It sucks but it will be worth it. Im almost done with mine.

I bought a 2.5" RC lift and I really like it. I've had no problems so far, but from the thread in here, it seems like they're taking care of their customers when issues do come up.
