Comments: Pretty good kit. The only complaint I have is the tracbar relocation bracket but I already planned on running a JKS rear adj tracbar.

Comments: This kit is cheaper than competitors (in that height), good experience, fairly complete, it gets u riding 4 inches higher, looked quite nice and shiny in the box, comes with 4 small stickers and 2 big window sized stickers.
Coils:They have rubber coating which does not peel or flake off like paint. Very thick and muscly.
Lower control arms: still have paint on them with very little rust, they are also greasable which increases bushings life, location of grease fittings makes them very easy to maintain.
Tcase drop kit: 2 square tubes (1 per side), not couple washers like some of the other kits. Still no signs of rust or paint flaking.
Sway bar links: Solid good design, very reliable.
RC Hydro 8000 series shocks: None
Drop pitman arm and bracket: Better alternative than having to drill a big half an inch hole in the stock already weak bracket.
Hardware: Any bolts and nuts are included in this category. It's good they were all here.
Here is what i dislike about the kit. Coils: Because they are very hard, they cannot flex and make a nice bouncy ride. At first when i installed the rc kit. I measured almost 5" of lift increase in the front and 4.75 in the rear. Well about half a year after installation (no offroading either) i noticed my rig was definitely sitting up higher on the rear end than the front which made me take measurements. Yup, it's true, the front was lower than the rear but also the passenger side was lower than the drivers side. Those measurements back then were 4.25" lift on the rear drivers coil, just under 4" for the passenger and about 3.5 for the fronts. The rubber coating was ripped on spots when i took it out of the box.
Lower control arms: Very bad design. They use rubber/plastic cylinders as bushings which cannot bend or flex at all increasing the load on the axle and frame control arm brackets. Next, the location of the grease fittings puts them in the way of rocks fallen trees or any other obstacle on the world.
Tcase drop kit: None
Sway bar links: Paint is flaking exposing rust underneath.
RC Hydro 8000 series shocks: They rode hard from the start till the second i ripped them out of there. I flipped the rear shocks over with no change. I am not saying factory sports car hard, i'm saying racing car hard. Again rust on the body and plenty on the piston rod.
Drop pitman arm and bracket: uck, I dont know why they spend their time even designing this combo. It's junk but yet costs just a bit less than their 4" track bar. I have some bump steer. The bracket and the dropped pitman arm are both 100% rusted.
Hardware: NOT A SINGLE BOLT WAS STAINLESS. They all rusted through.

Comments: This is a good lift if you want to run some 33's and you aren't very abusive. I have had to add alot of things it is missing in order to run my 35's. Hind site I would have waited and bought a more complete lift.

Comments: The lift was pretty easy to put on. I am pleased with that, but the kit is too universal. The torque shaft bracket didn't fit my Jeep so I had to make my own. and the labeling of some of the smaller parts could be better.

Comments: Great kit at a great price! Granted, no one likes lowering their t-case, but I couldn't afford an SYE or CV shaft at the time... Solid pieces, no issues or complaints! Installed my stabilizer same time as the kit, though, so can't comment on street driving without one...

Comments: So far, so good. It hasn't left the garage yet since installed. Wished there had been an upgrade option for shocks in the kit I bought, would have rather had gas.

Comments: Ride quality was very stiff at first, but as things have broken in it has improved. Still on the stiff side. Great bang for the buck. The only parts I'm unhappy with are the TC case linkage and the rear track bar relocation mount.
