My sticker was in a small cardboard tube in with the shocks and hardware. I threw it aside at first not knowing what it was.

Hey Rough Coutry,

Did you replace all the springs and if so what do you offer in a mild lift? like a 2.5''? What all does it come with? All I seen on the website was 4'' and 6'' you dont go any lower than that anymore? I sent you a PM like 2 weeks ago asking about it I just figured that I would post it here too just in case you didnt get the PM

Thanks

Alright it looks like its my turn to have an issue. I bought my 4" kit in Jan. of last year and installed it in Feb. or March and I believe its starting to sag. It scrubs in the back when I take turns and is eating my rear fenders and flares. I'm running 1 1/2" lift shackles and have been running them since day one and still they scrub, and if I put any kind of weight in it it sags even more. I can't really tell on the front as much but its definitely sitting lower all the way around. So a year-ish later I'm having issues.

I don't own one, but have had the chance to ride in one and see it in action.

As everyone says, a little stiff, but seemed worth it in performance. My friend who uses them had 0 complaints.

i just installed the new set, and MAN!! day and night differance in ride quality, so if the ride quality has improved like you said it has, im assuming the spring sagging has been resolved as well..

does anyone think the new and improved RC 4" lift would be too much for 30" tires...I am currently running 30s on stock suspension, 90YJ. Maybe I just need a 2" lift, I'm not sure

It will leave plenty of room to upgrade to bigger tires later. Or if you plan to keep the 30" tires, go with the 1.5" lift and maybe get a set of the 5/8 boomerang shackles for a bit more. You can always add TJ flares for more room as well. I plan on going that route and I have 31" tires currently.

just make sure the lift kit you buy has it included, almost all do.... and thats the one you use

besides.. i dont think the manual arm will even fit onto a power steering box
