Hello just picked up my R/C lift very happy so far, my 2 cent's why dont the lift company's give you front and rear spring bolts? I ran around for 2 days before finding the bolts i had to cut. Everone I spoke with had to cut the main eye bolts due to rust, maybe it's just a north east problem.. and again no big deal just my 2 cents. thanks jason
X2 on the MORE shackles. You can also pick up exactly what you need from Tractor Supply.

so i bought my kit in march 2007 from jcwhitney(unhappy with them). thay said it was shipped on march14 2007 directly from vendor. do i have the old or the new springs? i have to admit, i've not installed the lift by now.
for what it's worth, i have a friend that's very happy with his 6"TJ lift...
You should have the new springs if JC was telling the truth and they did ship from us. If it shipped from us there should be a shipping invoice that shows it shipped from Tennessee.

I installed a RC 4" kit on my buddy's jeep about 2 years ago now. Well it showed up missing parts. Called up and had the parts in 2 days. great customer service. He then bent a spring when he hit a ditch and you guys replaced that too for free. Once again great customer service. Now the Jeep is sagging its butt off. the rear springs are almost flat and the fronts are catching up quickly. The 33's will rub big time now. The only complaint is the springs were not very good at all. They wear out to fast. the customer service was the best I have dealt with though. For the price and service if you guys have better springs I would definitely deal with again.

Whats this about 1.5" kit what all is included??! Im looking to do a small lift on a YJ I aquired, and that combined with some MORE shackles is exactly what I need (just want a 31 and lots of flex). Could you shoot me a PM on the price for both sets of springs? (shipping zip would be 37421)
I gotta ask the obvious question, and by doing so if it's answered with good pics, should help RC clear-up any confusion.
How about posting pics of the old leafs and the new leafs so folks can compare?
More specifically; leaf eye ends, all leaf tapers, all pads, all retainer clips & approx locations. This will allow folks to see how improvements have been made and help clarify if folks have the older design or the newer.
I started working fulltime in the off-road industry ~31 years ago, and RC was about our only competitor.
