They sell whole lifts for less than what other companies sell their springs for, I've done the research and looked at the numbers, if you've had yours for 2 years and have had serious articulation on the regular basis then you've gotten lucky and taken care of it. I recently read that they changed manufacters for the springs but havent gotten any feed back yet on the quality. I might be young but I do have plenty of time on my hands and the internet, and it's scary what kind of combination that can be.
Now you have heard a good thing about RC. I do not make any effort to take care of them, I beat the p**s out of my rig at places like rousch creek, crozet, big dogs etc. They work well. I have bent 3 of them kind of like CB and they have "settled" back into place and still work fine.

I've heard a handful of compliments to pages upon pages of complaints, this page has more compliments than anywhere else on the web. I will give them credit that their customer complaints are down now because of the manufacter change but they havent been tested as long as other springs have since they've been re-done. And your lucky then that it hasnt begun to sag or be an issue, now let's get back on the task of helping him with the spring issue instead of debating whether RC is good or not. I feel bad even suggesting anything because this threads more about people on me about not liking RC and suggesting upgrading than anyone helping him with the spring issue, I also provided other options too, personally, I would just replace all 4 at any cost but then again, I wouldnt have an RC lift, end of dicussion.

Back on topic fellas... At the end of the day it really doesnt matter what brand it is. It's still bent and the question was "Do I have to replace it?"

If it's a DD then, yes, rather safe than sorry.


Warning: Slightly off topic
For ****'s sake. It doesn't matter if anyone is a mommy or daddy. Or if someone lives at home. Just because someone (me for example) lives at home doesn't automatically mean I don't have **** to pay for. It also doesn't mean I have no right to say whether or not a product is good or not. I live at home, yes. But I also go to college. I work so my parents pay as little as they need for me because I'm lucky to have them to help support me in this transitional state of my life.
You wanna know the super-awesome suspension kit I have since people like me are just rolling in dough?
Saggy stock springs.

Being a responsible adult doesn't mean you have to be rich/broke/a mommy/a daddy/have the best ****ing suspension around.

So here it is: RC is NOT the best suspension kit around. But that is NOT the issue at hand.


I'd say if you can't replace the springs now (I sure as hell can't replace mine at the moment), just be gentle with them and check them as much as possible to ensure they don't deteriorate.

Give it a rest.
