Ive been running mine for about 3ish months now. I love it! Rides great on and off road. And the amount of flex off road is just ridiculous. I wish I had access to a ramp so I could take some pics.

You read my mind but I'm still reading up on which is the better buy; RC or IRO.

The coils will unseat themselves with the sway bar discoed. I haven't done any crazy wheeling yet, but I will be fabbing up some coil retainers before I do.

IRO upgrade for front AND rear runs $1600 for just the arms and mounting brackets. Which is more than the entire RC kit. Or the RC upgrade front AND rear with just arms and brackets is $1000.

Edit: RC apparently raised their price on the upgrade by $100. But still a lot cheaper than IRO

Has anyone found a vendor that has broken the kits down and sold them pieced together with other manufacturers? I assume a small business vendor could do that for cheaper than the upgrade "kits" or individual parts that are listed on IRO or RC website.

If you call them, they will usually sell you just the parts you want.
