Pro Comp Lift

Here's the situation i'm in. I was planning on buying the 2.5" Teraflex lift kit that comes with shocks and coils but it turns out I can get my self a ProComp kit for free. So that said, does anybody on here have experience with any ProComp suspension kits or know anything about them good or bad? Also on the parts list I can see online there is 2 kits,
1. K3099B - Susp. Lift Kit; Ref.; Frnt/Rear ES9000 Shock; Black; 2.5 in. Lift; Incl. Front/Rear Coil Springs; Hardware
2. K3099BMX - Susp. Lift Kit; Ref.; Front/Rear MX-6 Shocks; Black; 2.5 in. Lift; Incl. Front/Rear Coil Springs; Hardware
Any additional info on these kits or what the difference is between those shocks would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

I have this pro comp lift and got a good deal on it. Rides a bit stiff, but so far so good. But I'm also still in the break in period. Only had it on for about 2 months.

The company that owns pro comp is the same people who own 4 wheel parts and smittybilt. They have a lifetime warranty much like teraflex and others. Maybe upgrade the shocks for a bit smoother ride. My .02

But if you get it free, couldn't hurt to try it out IMHO

When it comes to lift i would not buy a Procomp.There are so many lift out there that are way better.... BUT if its free then go for it.

And if you dont like it and replace it then it wont hurt so much.

I have never heard of a "braek in period" for a suspension. Since you've had it for 2 months, please explain this and how long it supposedly lasts.

My experience from running lifts on various vehicles in the past is that there tends to be a settling period where some of the stiffness is worked out. I have heard much of the same from mechanics and ppl who sell lifts.

I think it's more of a getting used to it period than a break in period. Springs will weaken and sag over time. They do not require a break in period.

Well Tom, it's a break in period, it's just you who is getting broken in, not the parts.....

To each his own I suppose. But I have seen slight changes in lift height from initial install to a couple months after install without any additional mods added to weight it down. Was never huge difference but there

There is a slight break-in period for suspension upgrades. The components will settle some over time and you will see a small drop in ride height from the initial install as the springs adjust to the weight of the vehicle and the shock response will improve some although this may not be noticeable unless you are driving over rough terrain at high speeds

what do you recommend? seems to be the popular lift around here and i am in the market for one right now. i am looking for a 3" lift that looks good and handles well on and off road.

it still would be a daily commuter for me and most of my off road experiences are going to be fire roads and jeep trails in Ocala. Thanks for your .02

That was not my experience. It's been almost a year with no change in height or ride quality.

I would recommend BDS or Rancho.Those are the ones i have owned and between those two I would prefer Rancho.It rides so much better than BDS but then BDS have lifetime warranty.Either way you cant go wrong.

Also heard good things about OME and Teraflex but personally never used them.
