The basic lift, makes the jeep look sweet and gives it so much clearance on the 35" BFG ATs, but holy crap, the road ride is like a stagecoach (I cheaped out and didn't get the 2.2 upgraded shocks.) I'm happy with the lift, but need to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and the springs/shocks will soften up over time. Please someone tell me (and my kidneys) this is the case, and how many miles this will take. Alternatively, will a good set of shocks help out?
btw, I know...my bad expecting a $500 kit to make anything more than a mallcrawler...j/k for the price its pretty good, just finding it takes another $500 in bits and bobs post-installation..
Hey I don't have your kit but I do have a Rough Country 3.25" with the 2.2 shocks and progressive coils It has loosened up quit a bit. It took about 2 weeks and a couple good wheels out in the bush but now its great. I would imagine the other shocks from rough country would loosen out just the same but time will tell.
I've found the springs won't/aren't softening, and some friends have advised to start with springs not shocks. So I've decided to change them out. Anyone with suggestions for manufacturers of replacement springs?
Man, some people just expect too much from a cheap lift kit. I have the Series II and it rides a little rough, but I can live with it until I piece together something nicer.
So you buy cheapo stuff, suffer with the bad quality, then upgrade again to better quality. Wouldn't it have been less expensive to buy the quality parts the first time around, and skip wasting money on the junk?

of course...let's call it $500 mistake....ok...now can we move onto the advice and less of the "I told you so"?
