RC, I've sent you a couple e-mails which have been bounced back.

Do you guys have a winnipeg distributor? The main Canadian one I could find was Gemini Sales who has inflated the price of the kit to, i imagine, cover his expenses for profit, shipping and duty. I'd then have to pay $120 to have it shipped to me from him...not worth $700 total to me especially considering the value of our dollar these days.

Please advise.

I put a set of 3 inch RC springs in the front of my xj to even up with my Hells Creeks full leafs in the back. I only got about 1.5 inches out of the RC's when they should have been around 2.75 to 3. I let them know and they are sending me a new set. hopefully stiffer, unless i just got an unlucky set of weak ones. anyway, im not looking forward to swapping out the springs, but good customer service from RC none the less.

RC, what are your thoughts putting the 1.5" springs, Spring Over. Is this recommended? Would it void the warranty? Thanks

There doing fine, first thing was to take it on a trail near homestead motor speedway and they're all rough but the seem to be getting better.. I give props to RC on the lift. Second set and I'm just as happy with this set as I was with the other.. I'll suggest it to anyone who wants a great lift at an awesome price.. BTW this is what the lift looked like on my other wrangler with 2 years worth of abuse on the RC lift


Never bent or sagged and I gave it hell every weekend

This is a very good question.

If the answer is no, then do you intend to make a set for spring over???

Why would it?

Obviously, you need to set it up properly to run SOA. It is alot more complex that it seems, especially if you can't do the welding yourself. Even if you can, you need to know what you are doing.

As long as you have a well-made anti-wrap bar on the passengers side of the YJ, and everything else is setup right, there should be no problem with it.

My thought was is that it would be using the springs in a way that they were not originally designed for so that might void the warranty. I didnt know if they have done any resaerch on this? Soa uses the spring in alot different ways and most springs people use are either very heavy duty or have extra leaves in them in and so forth. I know all that goes into SOA ive done lots of research. I was just curious what RC as a company thought of it.

Why would the antiwrap bar need to be on the passenger side, you are incorrect.

BTW this is not an SOA thread its just for people to learn about what RC is doing, so no need to tell me what goes into SOA.
