Just looking to hear what some people who have Rustys 2.5" suspension lift think of the product.

There spacer lift sucks just like any other spacer lift.There full coil lift is okay but use OE rated coils(just longer) so they will sag fast,alot faster if you start adding skids and other armor.

How long before they start to sag? I am thinking about putting it on my daughters kj. She does some moderate wheeling. Nothing heavy. Just seemed like a good bang for the buck. Also will 15" rims clear the calipers. That would give me a lot more affordable tire options for her. Thanks

Cragar is your best bet, 15X7 on jegs are like 54/ea and look great...

As far as lift...piece the frankenlift together yourself and you can do it for like 800, I think...do it right the first time

Rusty's coils sag as fast as OE coils,faster if you add armor and wheel it.

Rustys is not that great of a deal compared to what you get with OME coils and shocks
Rear shocks never did fit right
like mentioned front coils same as stock rating and have seen them start sagging in 10-12000 miles
