RC 2.5 Lift ..BB or Coil

I know this question is asked many times but I am looking to order the Rough Country lift and was wanting to see if the BB or Coil is better ($100 diference)?? If I use factory shocks what lift is best for the money for just mild off roading.

I see they have a kit with shocks & coils but are the RC shocks worth it or just use kit to use factory shocks? Any feed back would be apprciated and any pics with 2.5" on 265 70 r17 would help also make up my mind.

Thanks!

It is really up to what you want to do IMO. For very mild off road with limited articulation, the BB and stock shock brackets may be what you want. For a little more a spring lift with matched shocks will provide more off-road performance IMO...both will allow larger tires if you want (think re-gear) if you do...lifts with the original 31 or 32 inch tires look kinda funny.

if i had to do it again i would have just got the spacers though , and spent the extra money on shocks mine seem to be worn after 6 months. when u do lift it make sure to loosen your control arms before u install the lift and then torque when sitting on the groundat new ride height. make sure to get it aligned after also it is a must do not take short cuts to save money and time u will regret it. im speaking from my own expierence it sucks. also like the lift says move your rear sway bar links to the front.
