It rides so much better than it did with the stock springs. Part of that due to the bumpstops that were on it keeping it from basically any travel at all. There now is much more travel with a much smoother ride. Now I am going to play with the adjustable shocks and find the optimum ride. Also, just the look of it has changed ten fold in my opinion.

So everything else is stock except the bumpstops and shocks? No vibes?

None at all *knock on wood
The only issue I had was that my front axle is a bit offset (can see it just by looking at it). The rear offset is not even noticeable. I will eventually get the front centered just to appease myself. But haven't noticed any types of vibes at all. And I've already put several hundred miles on it since I put in the coils.

I really hate my Rough Country lift. It is the worst decision I have made on my vehicle. The right side of my vehicle sits about and inch lower than the left after about a year of ownership, and Rough Country will not reply to my inquiries about if they can resolve the problem. I left it open asking if they can do anything to help me but they simply do not respond at all. Not to mention the shocks are **** too which creates a really terrible ride quality. Do yourself a favor and don't get this lift.

How did you contact them? I never had any issues with RC fixing a defective or worn part and I've spoken to them on the phone and their chat box on the website. They never reply to emails though unless it's to a specific person who actually gave it to me.

I really dislike my RC 2.5" SL as well. The shocks were terrible, they didn't last long at all. The ride was terrible, and the springs settled more than I had hoped...

Well so far I am happy with the way it looks and it doesn't ride that bad either. I just hope I don't have to many issues with the springs or shocks. I was told that RC just change manufactures for the springs and I got their new N2 shocks so I hope there won't be any sagging. For the price I paid for it I don't think it's much more than the stock stuff from the local parts store. But after having some issues up front(dw) I wish I had waitied and spent a little more on a better system!

Yeah that's what I was referring to. They hardly ever respond to that for some reason. Their chat thing is good though.

Guys I don't frequent the forums as much as I used to so if you have an issue I don't know about it. I get on here everyday to check pm but don't check threads. Alot of times when you do the form over the web it will kick it to junk mail. So even though in today's email, txt message and live chat world sometimes the easiest solution is to just call us. 1-800-222-7023. Please just make sure you have your order information with you when you call.

Well finally got around to installing my 3.25 RC lift. Here it is sitting on my stock 30x9.50. I am impressed with the ride. I did have to buy a new adjustable track bar and got some new fat bobs garage LCA's. Over all if I had it to do all over again I would have gotten the 4" lift by RC. I started with about 10 1/4" of clearance measured off the skid plate and ended up with about 12 1/4" over all. I have noticed that the front sits lower than the rear but its hard to get a proper measurement. It seem the rear is about 3/4" higher than the front! I wonder if anyone else has had this issue and or what the fix is?

The 2.2s are ****. So I run longer, better shocks. Ride was okay, until I upgraded CAs now its tight and sweet. And as the ride hight, Still sitting tall and flexing well.. 3 years strong. One of the best progressive rate coil IMO
