I ordered leaf springs for my son's XJ from SDTruckSprings.com and they arrived with a shipping label and wrapped in shrink wrap......seems to be the norm. As fratis said, you're gonna' beat the piss out of them and have them exposed to the elements year round.....don't really see an issue as long as the springs didn't show up one leaf at a time!

By the way, welcome to the forum! Lot of knowledgeable folks here willing to help you out with your build.

Thanks JBrown, yep wasn't complaining about a UPS issue. Do you guys ever sell on ebay? Its the sellers responsibility to apply a damn shipping label that will LAST the shipping process. If it were 1 spring, i'd understand mistakes happen. Sorry. 2 of 4 missing the shipping label, that's wrong.

I purchased winch, winch plate, lift kit, steering stabilizer, quick disconnect bar, 4 wheel extension kit, boomerang shackles, etc for all the ******* responses. Gotta love forums. To those realistic replies. thanks guys. Look forward to this.

Kinda wish you would have joined here before you bought all the stuff. We could have pointed you toward some better products at a lower price. That's ok though. We are all willing to help if a question arises.

Ordered parts. Parts arrived with 1 item missing. Vendor sends out new part no questions asked.

I don't see the problem

People have often complained about RC springs not working well. If youd like some tips on improving the ride we are willing to throw ideas at you.

I used to work for a packaging company. I would have at least wrapped them in coraflex( a kind of flexable cardboard) Its cheap and gives you a good place to stick the shipping labels.

What's a 4 wheel extension kit?

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

All the leaf spring kits I've ever bought were shipped that way. As heavy as they are, they will mangle a box. Try lifting a box of 4. It would be stupid awkward and heavy as hell. Btw, sounds like a UPS **** up, not rc

I'd sent the disco's back. You don't even need a sway bar on leaf rigs. Throw the track bar in the dumpster as well

I would do that too, no need for the disco's. Just get rid of your sway bars and trac bars while youre installing the lift.

Rough country is trash. They make trash, and they do everything they can to do nothing on their end to fix their issues.

They don't even respond to my claims about their garbage. I use to support them and defend them. Now I see why everyone calls them on their BS. Worse company. My leafs didn't fit from day 1, shackle all the way forward. Within 1000 miles one leaf is already sagging and my jeep is leaning. The x flex arms are clunky. It's just really low quality crap.

lol. Well im "glad" I went with RC Actually I based my purchase off of a different thread where guys posted up their photos with their lifted YJ specifically. I'd say 8 out of 10 were running a RC setup. We'll see, guess im not alone though!

If one of your leaf packs gets saggy and you dont want to deal with complaining and not terribly concerned with "lift" then pull two apart and mix them up.
