RCD 4" Lift Problems

Just installed the 4" RCD (Race Car Dynamics) Lift.

I took it to get aligned and the dealership found some problems. I want to save the money so I guess I will be tearing it apart and fixing it.

For the Passenger side track bar, there is a huge spacer that connects to the frame that is loose, and the instructions say you may have to grind the bracket where it connects to the frame to get a flatter spot for the spacer to seat, so guess I will be having to rip it apart and do this. I also ordered a new OME steering stabilizer.

Now, my question is, if I want to get rid of the idiotic spacer for the passenger side drag link do I have to get rid of the drop pitman arm that came in the kit if I install a new better track bar so I do not need to use a spacer?


Otherwise I love the lift, rides great and gave me the lift I wanted, I am just not too impressed with the steering solution this kit provides.

Thanks in advance,

Murrari

For starters remove the drop pitman arm and use the stock one no matter what. Drop pitman arm is never a good idea.

^^^This^^^ Then buy either a Currie or Metalcloak adjustable track bar and install in the stock location.

Ordered a new front adjustable track bar and OME steering stabilizer. Also I got rid of the wobble, just needed a torque wrench.

Thanks for the advice, it drives so much better.
