1. Rough country sucks buy new shocks atleast.
2. JC Whitney gives better prices than RC does even with JF Discount.
3. UCF UHC is kick *** and I will be ordering one soon, do you know how to get the JF discount for $274 shipped?

I know this is old, but how are you all liking the kits so far? May be doing this with a 3 in lift instead of 4 I'm not sure yet though. How are all the bushings and brackets on the control arms holding up, anyone experience any damage due to the quality of the control arms

Best advice is to do more research...understand why this kit is not recommended

I have been using the new style adj short arms for just over 2.5 years and I have been very happy with them. I think both the long and short arms use the same bushings. A few years back RC changed the bushing in both end of their adj arms. The older ones (maybe the ones the OP has or had) seem to have problems and left many unhappy customers.

As far as anything else about the long arms I can't help you but I have been very happy with their newer style short arms.
