Looking for a smoother ride....

I have a 4inch Rough Country lift. Good cheap lift. When the tax refund gets here, I'm looking to soften the firm ride this lift has. Should I be shopping for different 4inch springs, or would different shocks make the changes I'm wanting.

Suggestion appreciated.
Thanks.

Rough Country lives up to it's name....rough. Try a different company's spring. I have a Rough Country setup in my pickup and it is the roughest ride I've ever had. I don't know which company to suggest though.

Check out the Old Man Emu (OME) shocks. I hear they provide for a great ride.

what shocks do you have? I got the pro comp shocks and they make the ride rougher than you can belive.

OME Springsa and shocks is my recommendation, they do make 4inch springs

I got the shocks that came with the kit. Makes them RCs, I guess. Seemed awlful stiff when I was installing them.

I also have the RC 4" X-Series lift. Same problem with the rough ride. I just swapped out my shocks to OME LT's. It now rides MUCH better. I would try the new shocks first then replace the springs if you still want a softer ride.

OME's
