Good deal? Ok
But do you know once you exceed 3" you put the DS's at greater angles and risk damage. That's what makes these lifts "cheap" they either use brackets or cam bolts to better driveline angles or nothing at all.
S**t why don't people just buy a good set of 5" coils--slap em on--and call it a day
Teraflex and Rock Krawler make great 2.5" starter lifts.
Once you go over 3" it's a good idea to run front LCA's and rear UCA's to correct caster/pinion. Front TB to center FRONT axle and a bracket or TB for the rear.
The word "cheap" and lift should never be used together.
I can't say anything about RC because I don't run their kit. But I do here crap about their coils. Does it still hold true? I do not know. Just do your homework or that $400 you spend will turn into $2000 real quick
