Opinions wanted for this lift kit!!!

Check out this lift kit available on ebay. Is this thing crap or good? It comes with long arms and for the price seems decent.

Lift Kit

I don't have this kit, but a friend of mine has a 1999 Grand Cherokee Laredo with the 4" lift kit, he instaled this kit:

They pretty much have everything and cheap, He has not issues except for dead wobble, but than again who doesn't have it when lifting their WJ?

Wait for the experts they will tell you if it's crap or not, I can only tell you that my friend is pretty happy.

I have this lift on my WJ. It has been great. I do have a few rattles I am still working out but I am very happy with it. I ordered mine from Bobby at Classic City Offroad (CCOR) great service and a better price. Look him up.

Is it the best quality kit on the market? No, but for the price it really cant be beat. i had the 4" xflex short arm kit on mine for awhile and it was fine for awhile. then joints started to wear out. i replaced the trackbar with a jks immediately. i liked the coils and the shocks arent that bad either. I have since replaced everything except the rear coils after 2.5 years. Keep the joints greased and get a jks trackbar and you'll be ok.

I bought the short arm x-series kit from the same place and agree that I am mostly happy with mine too. I had a bad Heim on the TB and needed to have my steering stabilizer replaced (it started leaking after 2 months of use) but RC treated me great and shipped all parts promptly. All companies have issues with parts from time to time and I thought nothing of it because they took such good care of me.

So far, I wouldn't hesitate to do it again. The kit was very complete and overall seems like it was good quality.
