So I've put a few hundred miles on the IRO long arms and they ride awesome. With their 5.5" coils it rides as good, if not better, than a stock xj.

Highway speeds it drives awesome and feels very stable.

Yeah it did suck, that was my first vehicle and I had it for 5 years and put around 75k miles on it.

Replaced the u-joints in both driveshafts. Took forever since all the u-joints were rusted in since they appear to be the orginal u-joints from 2001.

So I have been waiting on rear shackles now for 4 weeks...very aggravating considering my front is at 6" lift and rear is at 4". I originally ordered the RE boomerang shackles but after two weeks I found out they were on back order from RE for at a minimum of another two weeks…

Installed the RC quick disconnects. On a side note RC is an awesome company to deal with, I got the replacement end link in 2 days!

Is that what disco stands for? Hmm I didn't know that

I know several people who have gone offroad with their quick discos connected and not broken them.

RC makes some great stuff. im looking into their LA upgrade for mine. what you should be looking into is why they broke....my guess is you have WAY too much HP, flex, and a big right foot.
