Nice choice. Did you order the front and rear upgrades or just the front?

Just the front.

I have teraflex arms & a-arm spacer in the rear, thats good enough for me. Plenty of flex back there IMO.

How did I know you were going to respond first.

Kolak. I was gong to order through Clayton because my Jeep has been sitting in the garage with no front control arms, but Nick said I would get it just as fast as through him.

I've gotten 3 orders direct from Claytons in the last month. Dunno what your wait is.
Axle bracket kit. Frame side brackets. And arms.

Are you serous? I ordered my kit in September. I got the front only kit, is that more than what you ordered?

I waited about a month for my front long arms from Kolak.

The track bar and coil springs that I ordered directly from Clayton were here in about a week each.

Order 1 was the high clearance axle bracket kit and the truss.
Order 2 was all frame side mounts.
3 is arms and that'll be here this week.

Orders from last week of sept to now. Never more than a 1 week wait.

That only applies to FULL kits, not the front/rear only kits like Sean is wanting.

I just did the RK 3.5 flex long arm kit and have been loving it , just did some minor flexing with it on neighbors hill, no real climbing or flexing , but even there , the kit was awesome . It drives down the highway smooth as butter and flexs like crazy , was a pretty straight install also . I have been waiting on pics to put in a thread and all my dealings with RK have been great and easy to work with . I have run just about every LA kit out there on my various Jeeps , from Fabtech , Full-traction , and a few others . I seem to keep a Jeep for about year then try another one and built it differently , but my last few kits have all been Rock Krawler and have held up to Rausch Creek and Paragon with no problems and have great road manners .
