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.

To me, RC is kind of the Harbor Freight of springs. Sometimes you get a good deal and sometimes you don't.

you be fine. i DD/offroad my yj on 5" lift(4" RC lift+1" rc boom shackles), do 70mile round trips to school and back. 31" tires are fine on stock axles heck theres folks on here running 35s on stock axles not recommended but has been done.

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.

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..............
