Yah, whining about a lift "not riding well" and not meeting your expectations is NOT going to get you a refund. You bought an aftermarket lift kit...You cannot expect it to be perfect. If there was mechanical fault i could see them refunding you. But since you've installed it and used their product, i doubt they're going to have you box it up and send it all back.

That being said, maybe you should research a little deeper what you really want. Sounds like your very finicky...so try working out the bugs that you're having now to reach a compromise. Giving up this quick is not a very good life lesson ...

Honestly I would reconsider getting this lift.

X2 make sure you didn't over tighten the bolts or else it will ride like a tank.

I will go out and get the specs on it. How tight should they be? Might install new steering stabilizer to help the front.

I have a 3" rc lift with a 1.5" shackle and spacers and longer shocks, and the rc adjustable control arms, otk steering and double shear trac bar, rides a little rough sometimes, but feels fine on the road, i leaver my swaybars always discoed, as in i took them out...

You cant have a caddillac and a friggin liftedf jeep in one unless you drop stupid $$,
your best option is to get a better shackle angle, i suggest relocation brackets from hd engineering, then run some better shocks, bilstein 5150's would be a perfect shock for you

drop brackets for the control arms would help too, and what diod you expect running flex joints, they are not smooth at all on road, but they will outlast any bushing when wheeling, but switching to regular bushing will help alot too

\Deathwobble? Did you do a good alignment after the lift? Trac bar and control arms set tyo the right height?

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.
