Superlift Opinions wanted

I am looking around for cheaper 4" springs to replace the 4" Procraps i have that are now like 2.5". I am looking for something with little to no sagging issues and not afraid to flex. Any thoughts on Superlift? I can get 4 of there 3.5" springs for $280.

Ive had RE springs, but have had the superlift springs you mention for several years now. Hands down the REs are the better ride, but the superlift springs have been excellent. No sag issues and they flex well. Not pro crap but not Cadillac ride either. Its a mid line lift. But i would purchase another. Just remember there is a heavier rate spring for the front if you are going to run a winch etc. It should cost no extra to get the heavier rate, but you need to ask for it.

There is truth in that. Like i said I had an RE 2.5 lift. I decided to make the jump to 35s and a buddy of mine with the 3.5" superlifts was wanting to go spring over and the 3.5"s were a bit much. The trade worked out for both of us. So I got these springs used, and have now been running them for a few years myself and they have not sagged a bit and flex well. Ive bound it up enough to break 2 spring hangers (separate occasions) with no spring damage. I truelly think they are a decent spring. Im now at a point where i could buy anything i wanted lift wise, but im happy enough with this lift that im not interested. Just sayin

I will say this though. Things change alot with these companies. Since my springs are older, there really is no telling who is making them for superlift now.

I have the 3.5" Super lift springs and it rides decent with the sway bars and track bars off. Flexs pretty well too. It just took it a while for the springs to settle because they were heavy duty springs.

Okay so the order that i am getting from this is RE then Superlift then Procrap. Where would Rough Country fall into that. I was debating getting a 4" Rough Country kit then selling everything but the springs or selling my old springs with it.

RE and BDS are the preferred brands if moneys not a problem. IMHO Rough country ranks right there with pro comp.

I agree, If you can afford BDS or RE do it. Personally, I like the insurance that my BDS springs offer. No matter what happens they are guarantied.

If you only want to pay for a lift once, BDS is the best option.

The lifetime gaurantee rocks and for a leaf spring vehicle, the ride is great and a far cry better than even my stock springs.
