Rough Country lift problems??
 
I'm wanting to lift my 92 YJ with a tight budget, i know rough country sells a 4" suspension for fairly cheap. Is it worth it? are there any common problems with it or any better alternatives without spending an arm and a leg?

Lots of sagging issues.

Run a search, tons (literally thousands) of threads on their springs.

Best idea is to buy a quality spring and shock and don't buy a kit. Individually piece together the couple things you need beyond springs and shocks (pitman arm, t-case drop or SYE, etc) You can do a lift without all the garbage included in most kits.

My recommendation on a quality spring= OME, BDS, or RE

What Jerrod said. ^^^

I am currently riding on the sale price mistake so look around do the research and wait for some quality. It is a mod you don't want to have to do twice lots of money saved for other great Jeep addiction ideas!!

I love the rough country kit. Both my jeeps have them, and they recently changed spring manufacturers. If they sag, they replace them.

This is said only by people trying to justify going with a spring that they have read so many negative reviews about. It was probably true once a few years ago, however the new spring manufacturer was/is just as crappy and they sag just as bad.

I replaced the RC springs that were on our 92
I'm guessing they are some original series springs as they had some age on them when we bought it in Dec of 08
They appeared to give about 3" on thier own

I have reconditioned 2 of them and the other 2 are still in need
You want cheap?
I'll give you the springs for free - thats all they're worth
But I want $100 for the time I spent blasting and painting on the 2
you pay shipping

You get what you pay for in this world

I have the RC 4in on my 89. Sags sooo bad! Shocks are ****. Worst mistake i ever made, I am thinking of upgrading to RE (Rubicon Express) springs and BDS shocks.

Good Luck! :cheers2:

I should have added that we replaced those old RC springs with RE 4" springs
Theyre damn tall and stamped RE425 - i think i ended up with the extreme duty set
They havent sagged at all but the ride quality difference is amazing
I used Bilstein 5100 shocks with them
Night and day difference

IMHO, the RC 4" life is well worth the money. I've had it on my YJ for a year now and am still loving it. I can't compare it to RE or OME, but in comparison to stock, it's way better. I haven't noticed any sagging, it does great off road and is real nice having that extra 4". I'd buy another RC 4" lift if I had another YJ, I'd recommend it to a friend also. That's just my personal opinion

As someone who tried to help, you don't have to be nasty.

Rough Country isn’t worth the time to put it in. I got the 4inch and I barely got 3 out of it. And nowthey sag so bad the tires rub every time I go around a curve. Don’t waste yourtime or $$$$

LMAO. What i said is not nasty, It is a fact. If you really think that was nasty, you are way to easily offended. I guess some think its nasty when someone has a different point of view on something.

I have a 6in R/C lift I can't see any sag. Its beeen on 4 or 5 years. Rides ruff but I think it always has.
