Awesome thanks. I cant seem to get my jeep to start. It cranks for a long time then finally starts and has a rough idle and I'll give it some gas and it will be fine....... Fuel pump? I installed a new fuel filter and I got under there while it was running and I heard the fuel filter WHISTLING. I started moving the fuel lines and the noise was changing. I couldnt get it to go away... Is this normal?

How does it ride, both on road and off road? I've been contemplating the lift you have and the Clayton 4.5 long arm. HUGE price difference. I've just heard the the RC x lift has a rough ride from a few people.

Not saying this because Im excited and all but I really do like the ride. I want long arms but for the money I'm REALLY impressed. I havent gone offroad due to massive amount of fender trimming that will need to happen first, but Im sure after a couple weeks the shocks will "break in" if you will and it will get softer.

How much stiffer is the ride? My 01 has stock springs and its too mushy for my taste. Does it not "roll" as much in the turns with the RC lift. No death wobble at highway speeds? Sorry about all the questions. Did you have to adjust the pinion angle?

Personally I think it rides like a jeep should, a little stiff. I like it. I am gunna get the rear Adco sway bar. There is quite a bit of body roll in the rear. No I don't get drive line vibes. I adjusted the pinion angle as much as I could I need upper adjustables to do it properly. I would totally recommend getting the lift. It's really beefy. I love the lower control arms. They freaking stout.

Good stuff. One more question. Does it sit level with the new springs, or would it need a spacer up front to level it out? And if so, what size spacer would it take to make sit level?

It's pretty close to level. I'll prolly toss a 3/4 inch spacer up front for more tire clearance. Good questions! Keep them coming!

It's about 17 on the highway going 65. The speed is off due to larger tires so maybe after I get that fixed it will be more accurate.
