I just bought a RC 4" and I love it. No sagging issues yet. But with that said, just because it works for me doesn't mean it will work for you. Then again you may even better results than me. I look at it this way. A lift kit is like parenthood. Everyone has advice to give. You just have to figure out what works for you.

Bring back the jeep Wave ---

Instead of shipping leaf springs in their kits, RC should just ship steel tubing that bolts to the shackles. Same effect either way.

Well I run the rough country springs on my yj. I had the lift on it for over 1.5 year. I run their 1" boomerang shackles as well. The rocker height seem to stop settling as its 25" on pass. side and 24.5" on driver side on 33inch tires of course Im the only one in it. The measurements has been that way since I put the shackles on over a year ago. That being said it doesn't mean I wont upgrade springs. My shocks already crapped out only being a year old. The main reason I bought the rc lift is because of being a broke college kid.

Do they compensate you for the ubolts too? Personally, if I'm going to have a warranty on my springs, I want to choose a company that has an unconditional guarantee and dares you to try to redeem on it.

Oh wait! I have BDS...

Did you buy RC lift in the past? Or do you know a lot of people with a bad experience with RC. You seem to have strong feelings against RC. There cheap for a reason so my expectations are low I was surprised how well they performed.

I almost bought a set until I rode around in a jeep with their springs in it and I decided that I needed to manage my money better. I put together my lift for about the same price as a comparable lift height from rough country. I had a post last year breaking down every expenditure and calling the same amount of work on both sides a wash.

Nobody needs to buy into RC strictly because of the price. I have read about fifty cases on this forum where people have been unhappy with their springs and most turned around and bought better quality springs from another company. The documentation is all here. You don't need a pre packaged kit when you have the freedom to choose which pieces you need for your particular needs. And yes, my opinion is strong on this subject as it is on every subject where experience and cold hard facts drown out any hopes and dreams of being the one in a million that got the springs that don't sag. Wanna know why people are so happy with RC leaf springs? It's because they don't know any different.

say what you want about the Sh!ttiness of the RC lift. I run AND wheel it, HARD too. i've had no sagging issues yet, its not that i dont expect them but i'm happy with the lift, the way i see it, a leaf spring is going to sag, yes in the future i will invest in a "better quality" spring. But the RC springs do actually work and they have a lifetime warranty, so if they sag, they get replaced. i got no problem with that.

Ok fair enough, I did some research and tried to do the same I didn't find it to be comparable in prices at all I would like to see what you put together. I work on cars and got into Jeeps hard hope to do another. Is your post still up LINK please? I'm going to check it out maybe I will do it your way next time and compare.

I don't have access to it anymore but it was a breakdown of piecemeal springs and shocks and SYE off eBay and Cherokee driveshaft. Brake lines were addressed as well. Ill write up a new one one of these days.

I thought RC was alright until I rode in a YJ with OME springs. Holy **** the difference was clear. Only until the springs sagged did they start flexing decent.

BDS is next up for the suspension.
