I just installed the RC lift last weekend and I love it it rides great and flexes great. My only issue is the differentials started leaking front and rear at the pinion seal. No big deal. It was the best money I've spent on my jeep so far.

It arrived finally. Ups is always super late here. Fortunately I tweaked my back in anticipation I'm guessing. Either way I wouldn't have had time to start today. This weekend I have a date with my zj.

Did get vibes. Solved by putting my stock arms in the back. The rc fixed lowers are a bit too long. With adjustable uppers the kit would be much better. I'm still very pleased with it.

TC drop? Thought you never needed one with a ZJ?
