RE 4in or Rustys 4in lift?

i have been looking at both lifts and am planning on buying a lift in two weeks. I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on either lift to buy of if one is better. Any suggestions?

yea i've heard rusty's has some issues with sagging faster then other brands. i agree w/ patrick though, BDS is what i run, best decision ever, but for your choices, i'd go RE of rusty's any day of the week.

i have a Rustys kit its been good to me so far been on for about a year doesn't look to have sagged any

i would say your going to spend the same amount to get the Rustys kit as you would getting the RE, kit roomer is the RE and Rustys springs are made by the same people

as the Rustys kit is about 100 to ship where as the RE is normally free to ship

its up to you

I haven't heard to much good about Rusty's lifts. I bought my SYE/CV shaft from them, and haven't had problems, but I have heard their lifts and even some of their skids get a big

I have the 4" RE and I love it just gonna take a while to break in the springs. They are very stiff right out the box. So stiff that It Gave me closer to 6" inches of lift when i first put it on.
