lift/sway bar question???

Looking at a 2.5 inch left. Every lift I have looked at comes with sway bar extensions. For whatever reason Rough Conunty doesnt on any of the lifts from the spacer kit all the way to the coil and shock kit. So, I called them and the guy says its not needed. While price of the kit is really nice, does anyone have experince with the kit and does that really make a differnce? Just seems odd to me that every other lift Ive looked at has this in their kit and RC doesn't and you cant even add them.

I'd want longer front sway links on a 2.5" lift.

I got the RC 2.5 spacer lift and didnt' come with sway bar extensions. I used the stock ones for a little but it wasn't a good ride. I just ended up getting JKS quick disconnects for that problem. Other than that it's been fine for me.

Yes that is what I was thinking. That makes no sense to me. I just confired again. all the lifts I've looked at buying come with at least two and reuse the back for the front.

You can use the stock but I would think flex would be limited.
I don't know how the ride would be on road

Ya when off road you will get no flex, that's what I meant about the ride sucking. I was getting tired of disconnecting the stock links.

Yea I understood that. I just thought I would ask. You can't beat the price. I know in the truck world a spacer is a spacer. And after hrs of reading will be going 33x12.5 for sure. I still think its weird that RC doesn't add the rear track bar bracket but sells it extra as recommended upgrade. That feels abit shady. Not everyone is going to spend time researching and have previous lift experience.

You are right about not beating the price, but Rough Country lifts are notorious for having saggy springs. Not a lift I would go with personally. However, there are lots of folks out there running it.

Well comparing RC 2.5” lifts to say Tera or Rock Krawler 2.5”. Price wise no, you won’t beat it but they are apples and oranges. With TF and RK, your getting a better, more complete lift.

Now this I believe when it comes to springs. But I'm looking at the coil spacer lift with the shock extension. But apples to oranges when it comes to spacer an extensions I don't believe that. A spacer is a spacer. Yea when the time comes for to replace the spacers and get coils it will be either TF or RK.

I agree, most spacer lifts are very similar.
Some include other components also. Components you may need so do your research. Ya....you can buy just the spacers of eBay for $50 but depending on the lift height you would need longer away link(s)/Bumpstop ext/brake line ext/etc.
Now your pushing $200-$250. Another $200 will get a nice coil lift.
I cheaped out and bought the coil lift w/ shock ext for $470. Been 3 months and I have added. Shocks/LCA's/front TB/shocks again.
I am not making that mistake with tires.
Right on to 35's
