This is being addressed as we speak. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

dont know if you noticed or not, but the kit comes with two different sizes of bushings. the bigger bushings are for the frame mounts, and the smaller ones are for the shackles. this confused me when i first installed the lift, after i realized that there were different size bushings life was good again.

I shouldn't have ANY problems with regard to replacements IF I need, right?
I am your direct link to the manufacture as long as you have proof you are the original purchaser I will take care of you. I hope that was the question you wanted answered sorry I missed it.

Yea, that was the one I was referring to
"I" had it installed Rough... as I said in the post.
What kind of proof? My install receipt I guess right? - Since the shop purchased/installed.....

Yup that will work. If the case arises that you need warranty work the replacement parts will be sent to them unless authorized by the shop (since they were the actual purchaser from us directly.) Bottom line......You will get taken care of..PERIOD.

Rough Country Kits

I have used Rough Country kits for many years and I can tell you guys from first hand experience, that the Rough Country kits are by far the best that I have found for the money and for the quality of the components in the kits. I have used them on the streets and I have bashed them offroad and I have never had a problem with the function or the quality of their kits. As far as the ride, I have riden and driven many different off road rigs and the flex and comfort of the springs are second to none. I realize that everyone has a preference, but from my experiences those guys are top notch!!! I will never use anyone else for my road rigs or my trail beaters.

FYI......You can also overtighten the spring bolts!! So be careful when tightening the bolts because that will make your ride a little rougher due to the poly bushings.

I will also say this. Who do you see more of actually on the trail with their rigs. The last couple of off road events that I have been to, the guys from Rough Country have been there with their rigs. They were not just sitting around, they were on the trail with their rigs. I have not seen another company that takes such an interest in our off road lifestyle. IF you have a problem, these guys listen. So we all need to give them some props for having the b@!!s to ask us what we think as offroaders.

Thanks guys for listening to us.

Just for clarification, the sleeves for both the frame side and the shackle side have the same outside diameter. The frame sleeve has a larger inside diameter than the shackle sleeve. If you try to use a shackle sleeve on the frame end, the bolt will not fit.
