I'm going to try to get jeep4x4center.com to price match to a site I found offering the RR HD kit for $185. Are you happy with the way yours steers? What do you not like about it? Thanks!

The larger tube makes for more tie rod roll and the passenger side end is proprietary. Those are my only complaints other than it being a close fit and the bracket for the stabilizer rubs at full stuff but its on my grinder list.

No problem man! I really appreciate the input. I decided to go with the stock Crown Auto parts. Only cost me about $153 shipped. At least my Jeep will have brand new steering that I can get parts for anywhere. And hopefully it will stand up to any abuse just fine.

Haha. Yea I know I skimped out with the springs. But so far I'm really pleased with them. They seem to ride and flex great. They may go limp sooner than expected but we'll see. I wanted Rubicon Express but after I talked to a guy at Rough Country he explained they had changed suppliers for their springs in the last year so I thought I would give them a try. Yea the tie rod flip is a great idea. Thanks for the help! I may start a build thread later on just to keep track of all the mods I've done. The jeeps been in the garage all winter and now its hard to list off everything I've done!
