Gave one last ditch effort to contact RC last night, I found the scrap paper I wrote the Sales Managers email address on. As of today nothing yet doubtful I'll ever hear from RC so I doubt I'll ever do business with them again!

Ah ha that's the trick. I finally received a response today. Their R and D department is aware of it and waiting until they get a stock jeep in so they can figure it out. Sounds like a line of BS to me

That must be quite an R&D department. They can get the stock bolt length by simply measuring a bolt or looking up the part at Mopar. All they need to know is the length of the stock bolts + 2" but apparently that is beyond their level of mechanical ability. You are dealing with some dimwits LOL.

I found the same thing at the R&D department of another well know supplier of lifts for WJs. The other suppliers problems in getting lengths and adjustments right goes way beyond just bolts. Bottom line, just because a company sells a product don't assume they have the necessary skills in design and manufacturing to get it right.

Very well said. Needless to say I will not do business with them again and I will begin replacing every part that they sold me. This may sound stupid but a shirt and bumper sticker would of made me just as happy as Squire.

That sucks really is not much more than bolts and a spacer. Did it do any damage to the case? I just replaced my entire rear end three weeks ago because of the damage

i got a new spacer and hardware in today from RC. they're still selling the 80mm 8.8 grade bolts. I wont use those. I'm thinking 90mm but could the housing take 100mm for even more bite? i dont have the broke ones out yet

I'm somewhat using the RC installation instructions to line up my tools. For removal and reinstall of the rear end, will I need the coil spring compression tool? thanks

No spring compressors needed. Pretty easy to get them out!

Are you just replacing the bolts or are you installing your lift?

Shouldn't need them, once all of the connecting bolts are removed it will fall right out so be careful

Am I the only one that hates this stupid rear upper control arm design? It seems like the four arm setup worked fine for decades. Why the heck did they have to mess with perfectly good tech? Damn Engineers!
