just wondering

thanks
Because the demand was higher for a 4inch kit and there was no reason to have a 3 and a 4 inch kits.

Thanks RC!

I just found something out recently that helped my ride out. I installed a black diamond lift kit and followed the directions to the "t" which means I torqued the shackle bolts down to 95/105 ft/lbs. I found out from another discussion on here that people are running way lower torque's on their shackles. I lowered mine down to 45 lbs shackle side and 55 lbs frame side and used blue locktite with my nylock nuts. Ride has improved a ton for me, may be worth checkin out for you.

Here is the other thread where we discussed this:

Hmm...ROUGH Country...ROUGH ride.

I bought 2.5in BDS springs used and never had a problem, if I were buying new I probably would have gotten RC.

I just installed the 4" RC kit this weekend on my 94. And besides missing the TC drop Hardware well half of the bolts it was a GREAT kit. I also torque everything according to the directions that were included and used their shock. I have to say it rides great, yeah I was shocked too. Much better than the stock ride, My wife even commented that if rode much better, so good she wants to start driving it, So guess I need to tighten up the shackles up or something, anyone know how I can make it ride like crap!

I just installed my 4" kit this past weekend. It was a beyatch to install. I love the finished product but man was it a pain in the you know what to install, especially seeing as I was missing half the sleeves, bolts, and missized nuts. All is well though seeing as I called RC today and got new hardware overnighted to me. Should be here tomorrow. Talk about customer service. Even if the springs crap out I am still confident it this company. Thanks RC.

i was missing a couple sleeves and some hardware too. seems like it could be a great kit if a little more quality control was put into it. my sleeves were to small (inner diameter) for my bolts, so i had to run a drill bit through them until i could just slide the bolt through. was missing a few nut/bolt sets, and had to get a little creative with a few things. it looks great, just rides rough and is destroying my rear shock. im going to try to torque the shackles properly and see if that helps the rough ride

My sleeves were missized also. I had to run an old shackle bolt in a couple of the frame rail mounts to mount the leaf springs. Just as you stated though. Would be a great kit with a little more QC. HINT HINT RC: Start checking what is leaving your doors a little closer. Its the small stuff that costs you business. Just my 2 cents though.
