RC rides like crap!!!! Help!!!

I recenly purchased a 95 yj with 21k orginal miles. I put a 4" RC lift. The thing rides worse than a park bench. I was thinking of switching over to OME shocks. I have them on my lifted XJ and they ride very nice. Has anyone used these shocks on a YJ? They are about $300 for the set delivered. I run 32" tires on stock wheels with spacers too. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks...

I have the same problem with my superlift springs i was told to use them like offroading flem em and stuff to break them in drive with a load in the back to give them some stress and get new shocks and possibly boomerang shackles for the rear.i havent done it yet though

Pay me now or pay me later.....Rubicon Express. Sometimes you can't cheap out and need to wait and save your pennies before you pull the trigger.

What are you running for shocks? I still have the stock hydos. I noticed you have the 4.0. I have the 4cyl. My buddy has the 4.0 and it rides night and day different. I'm sure the weight helps that.

The extreme-duty is the complete kit. Go with that one. There's no such thing as a "cheap" lift. You get what you pay for.

What's the difference between the standard and extreme kits? The jeep is basically a daily driver.

They will both work, but the "extreme duty" is a more complete kit, so come time for install, no surprises. I have a TJ and I got the super flex because it had the few extra items, like discos and brake lines.

It cost's a little more, but it's a better investment. IMO

Leaf springs are aways stiffer than coil springs. I had a superlift "superide" 3.5" lift before I went all out with coilovers and hated the leaf ride but I dont know about other suspension lift brands.

Greaseable shackles front and rear will help ride quality, as will higher quality shocks, if you are looking for a smooth ride, I would recommend Old Man Emu.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

I think I might of found my problem. I put the shackles on with an impact. Does anyone know the torgue specs on the shackles? I think I'm pinching the spring and causing the rough ride. I'm going to replace the shackles with greasable shackles and grab some OME shocks.
