Yes, it's a real company, what would you like to know?

Rubicon Express, Iron Rock Offroad, Zone, and Rusty's are all good, though opinions differ on each.

Basically any company out there can get you a good, basic lift. Once you get into new control arms and a track bar, then you should starting sticking to good, quality stuff. But damn, I wouldn't run one damn thing Rusty's makes.

Haha yes. Clayton is top notch. They use Currie JJ's in everything and they build things near bullet proof. I know everyone hates them, but Rough Country isn't a bad option either. I'm really not sure why they get a bad rep. I've never had a bad experience with them, but I basically only buy springs from them.

Mostly because Rough Country is typically lower quality stuff, though it will work for lower and small lifts, ride quality of a RC 5.5" lift will be nothing like a RE lift or even certain IRO lifts (yes I know some of IROs stuff is RC).

That's interesting. I just took my RE lowers off yesterday, and I must say the flex joints are about the biggest piles of ***** I've seen. I have maybe 1500 miles on them and they are sloppy. I did buy them used, but they only had maybe 5k miles on them then. I've never run an RC joint, so I can't speak on those from a personal experience. A friend of mine had to replace them quite often though, since he has their radius arm setup. The long arm was good, the joints just sucked.

Yeah, even their joint on their track bar that I run is ****ty and binds up.
I need to get one of those Ironman4x4fab track bars, those things are crazy.

I got Iron Man 4x4 Fab non-adjustable front LCA's back when they still sold them for a steal, I think under a $100 for a pair. I don't think they even sell them anymore, but they are very nice. Made from solid rod instead of tube. They build their stuff for serious use, have very long threaded joints, etc. Nice work all around.

Good thing about Iron Man Fab is that they only use Currie JJ's for flex joints...
