Did you install your kit yet, if so what are your comments on it?

I was wondering about getting this kit w/ shocks, anyone else running this? I wondered what the ride was like, flex, and also what sort of lift you get once the springs settle.

i put the kit on my 87 about 3 months ago. be prepared for rusted ,seized and broken bolts. i had the most trouble with the bolts for the leaf springs oppisite the shackels. if you can, spray all of the bolts with some sort of pentrant. also expect a little hassle with the u- bolts, the new ones are bent a little differently. the lift itself has good ride quality and flex.i got the shocks with my kit and they seem to be ok, the kit for my cherokee didn't come with them so i orded rancho rs5000's and i like them. give yourself a good weekend to do the lift and try to get your hands on an air compressor with an impact gun to electric gun wont do anything for you. the air will help with rusted u bolts and with the shackel bolts. have fun

I have the 3in rough country lift on my 89yj and love it. Initially raised the jeep about 3.25in but settled out to about 3 in. I bought mine from a guy direct at rough country for $350 including shocks not bad? I installed it myself it an afternoon rides great alittle stiff in the I'am considering a shackle reversal for the front any thoughts? let me know. Thanks
