Nice write up. I installed mine around March and now it's sagging. My thirty threes are eating into my rear quarters and the bottom leaf seems to be coming separated from the pack. Has anyone else had this problem from there lift. I'm really disappointed and thinking about going with a BDS six inch lift next year. My friend Roadyy has BDS and his ride height is higher than mine and his springs are used. Thanks for all the pictures and the time you took to write this up.

Yes. Some haven't had any issue with sagging, but myself and many others have had this happen with RC springs. Run a quick search, you'll see what I mean.

You won't regret switching to BDS springs, they are night and day better in the quality dept.

I would suggest the BDS 5" springs and a little shackle lift instead.

Cool thanks guys. I think I'm going to concentrate on gearing up before that though have already gone through the experience of thirty three's and using the three o seven factory gears I couldn't imagine doing that with the thirty fives. I'm going to do a super eight in the rear 95-01 so I can eliminate the drum brakes in the rear and go with the 4.10 gears front and rear then I'll do my BDS and Tires and rims.

I figured I would post a reply and help some other readers out when trying to decide what lift to go with.

Mainly due to a tight budget... I decided to go with this lift. I have been happy with it so far since installation 6 months ago. No sagging- I'be pulled light trailers, loaded up the back, and had hardtop on/off with no issues. The spring pack seems to have as much rust on them already as the 22 year stock springs. It's just surface now, and no big deal. Flex is okay, I wish I had more... I didn't reattach the sway bar, and I can't tell a difference. Here are a few photos from this weekend

Lift is super rough/ bumpy.. I can't drink from a coffee cup anymore when driving But hey, it's a Jeep right!

I added some RC 1" boomerang shackles to my RC 4" lift. I hear on here longer shackles can help out if more flex is desired and it did. Like you Ive had my lift on coming up on a year and have no sag. I have a hardtop, 4.0 6cyl, loaded with cargo and full tank out gas and it will just level out. Heres a flex ive done with the shackles, no rear tracbar, no swaybar, but front tracbar connected.
