i dont know my r.c springs never saged ,not even 1/2 inch so i must have got lucky but they have a new contractor making them now , and i heard there alot stronger and better now , if you dont want to spend $300 more just to make everyone else happy just buy the r.c my 2 cents.

i have an rc 3" on my xj, its not bad. a couple years ago they reworked their kits from what i understand. i found that i had to buy new hardware as they dont supply it and i dont like reusing a lot of suspension hardware. but if you can afford the RE kit, i have never heard or seen anything bad.

Yes, at the end of the day, it is a personal choice. Take your time and don't get snowballed by price.

Just catching this. Not in the mood to read all 205 pages but I can say from experience;
I caught alot of flak years ago when I put a kit on my Yj.. But I can't complain... Two jeeps and just put on my 3rd 4" system. Overall, I'm pleased. Nothin to write headlines about but it's been reliable w no sag on any of em.
My most recent was replaced via insurance...
The olny thing I can say is that the rides rough... But like you're thinkin... It's a jeep man. I ya want a BMW ride quality, buy a BMW. It's a jeep, a lifted jeep. Would I recommend it? If that's what ya can afford..and what ur lookin for, I feel it's worth the money - now even more than before as it has been improved upon. And cust service is good; which nowadays, is crucial.
Just my 2 cents

Does Ryan still post in this thread? I need input on RC's 4" Ranger lift.

Also, I sold my jeep, 95 got hit and totaled. I have a 94 Ranger Manual V6 4x4 and a Lowered manual DSG Mustang GT with bolt ons now!

Mine have softened up quite a bit in the past year and a half, they've sagged but not too much. They flex real nice now though! When I have weight in the YJ it rides like a stock JK.

I had a 300 pound guy riding in back and a 210 pound guy riding next to me... nicest riding jeep I've ever been in. I imagine when I put all the armor on, the spare tire carrier, and spare tire, it'll be quite nice. I'm also swapping a V8 in so that will also help.

I imagine when you add that much weight you will be riding on the bump stops with RC springs.

All I can say is that when I broke my 4" RC's I called them and told them about it and they said "just send in $100 ea set and they would be happy to send new one's out. And yes I told them that it was their spring's and I would have been happy to send them Pic's. BDS here I come

Probably.


If they do sag considerably more, I'll be going with OME HD springs with their 1 inch shackle lift, and a 1.5 inch body lift.

35s and some trimming are in my future, with OME springs and bilstein 5150s, I'll be needing all the room I can get.

You must of had a total different expereince than i did for some "odd" reason...

I ran my passenger tire into a tree while rinning around a dry slick swamp..so hard it rolled the Jeep on it's side and inverted the passenger spring beyond repair...
Since it was MY FAULT..i called about a replacement and asked how much?..3 days later at no charge at all to my door i had 2 new front springs with new bushings at my door step..and remember..i only bent ONE spring and they sent me a matching new front pair and they could of easily said NO,because it was not their fault i wrecked it..............
