Replacement bushings for RC lift????

After about a year and a half of minimal use, the shackle bushings that came with my RC 4" lift are shot.

Obviously, now is the time to upgrade to poly.

After several conversations with RC's online customer service (who weren't much help at all) this is what I am told:

1) ONLY Rough Country's bushings can be used
2) Through RC, the bushings run about $30 per axle, for JUST THE SPRING EYE BUSHINGS!

This doesn't seem right to me.

Has anyone else with an RC lift come across another option for bushings?

Thanks in advance!

you must not have gotten a decent CSR. I allways deal with Josh at x111 or joey at x119.

When i did my 2.5 the first time around i did a complete set of daystars and fit just fine. KEpt the set that came with my 2.5 as spares.

actually used a pair of the spares when i had to swap a leaf out a few weekends ago on my 4" and fit just fine. Just pay attention to them.

fronts are thinner and the back eye has the wide shoulder bushing. rears have 2 that match up for width on the shackel and use the narrow shoulder ones for the front eye.

and if you mention jeepforum you usually get a 10% discount through rough country direct.

So if I understand correctly, the Daystars should work?

But RC may discount 10%

i did daystar when i first got my jeep 6 years ago because i needed a complete set body springs everything. i used them with my 2.5 RC lift because they were better and i had them. They worked fine.

When you call, ask for Jeffery and mention JeepForum. You'll get excellent service.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.
