RC springs have a tendency to sag, from what I've read. And if you're buying a coil lift, you don't want springs that sag. JMO.

^^This. Rough Country stuff is cheap for a reason. Spring sag is rampant among their lifts for JK's. Not saying it happens to every rig running RC components but why roll the dice?

By sag you mean compress? Then yes, under load all springs will compress. Some more than others and Teraflex, Rock Krawler, Synergy etc. list the lift height after compression under vehicle. Therefore you buy a 2.5” lift from RK, once installed it will be at 2.5” (usually a little higher). RC on the other hand is great brand new but over time your rig is lower than advertised height.

TF-along with the more rep company's I'm sure-have a lifetime warranty on springs, if they do sag.

Thanks for the help. Trying to fix the problem I made for myself as cheap as posible, and I think that would be the cheapest, but might not be the best.
