Coil Spring sagging help!!!!!!!!!!

Ok I have an 06 wrangler that I put on a Rough Country 3.25" suspension lift and front quick disconnects. I have had it on for 1 year now and I know what some people think about Rough Country and I am just about right there with them. In that year I have warrantied out the front and rear shocks.

Now my springs....I noticed my lf quick disco was all tweaked with the lock nut backed way off so I straightened it and retightened and double checked the rf. When I put on the lf disco no prob but the rf is about .75"-1" off. I have to have my buddy lift up the bumper to put it on. I measured the links to make sure they are both the correct and even length. I make sure the coils are in their proper place. I check to make sure nothing new is bent. I have not went offroading for a while. Everything is good but I have the same problems. So I measure each spring with the links removed and the rf is 13.75" and the lf is 14.5". I also measured from the bottom of the tire each side to the bottom of the fender flares. I got 37.5" on the lf and 36.5" on the rf. Finally here's my question...

Is it possible the rf spring is crap and has more sag? Do I just need to see if Rough Country will warranty out my front springs?

As you must know by now, RC's quality is quite bad. you can warranty stuff with them, but you're just going to have the same problem a few more months down the road......just face it, you fell into the trap of buying cheap stuff, and now you're suffering the effects of crap parts. you can't fix crap stuff by putting crap stuff back on.

Buy a better lift kit. Go with Currie, OME, Rokmen, DPG, RCD or Clayton Off-Road. Buy what you should have the first time around, and educate others of your experience. Buying good stuff the first time around, you save several hundred bucks over replacing your junk lift later.

Yeah Rough Country isn't going to get the reviews from me like I thought they would but I still need to know about the sag. I understand each spring is not going to sag 100% exactly like the other but what is a normal about of sag difference usually between springs?

Well I put over 20k miles on a set of OME springs and saw no sag. When I installed a winch, I swapped out the front springs for a stiffer set to compensate for the weight and eliminate a leveling spacer at the same time. (Yes, I sit level on all springs, no spacers, with heavy engine skid and a winch)

The guy I sold the front springs to had an OME TJ lift that was sagged about 1" all the way around. It took over 8 years and over 100k miles, but the OME's did sag. I'd say thats a normal amount of sag for an aftermarket lift.

Note the OME's come in two different lengths per kit. They are drivers side and passenger side specific. Drivers side front and passenger side rear are longer springs - this compensates for engine torque working those springs over time on take offs. Drivers front and pass rear take the most abuse and will likely sag first.

same issue here with ZONE, you should remove your spring and measure though. I hope mine is just a bad spring issue.
