Nah. I have that kit, rides the same. Mine came with the RE shocks too which felt a bit different, but not much.

get the monotube shocks instead of their cheaper twintube shocks..

also do it yourself if you can but make sure to take it to a professional for an alignment when your done

WTF???

I first went with a RE BB and the ride was actually a bit better than stock. Like mentioned, be sure to do an alignment anytime you change the height of the Jeep. If you get death wobble from installing a BB . . . you did something wrong . . . terribly wrong!!!

Installed the RE BB on my friends jeep, he says it rides good, just a little rougher than before. Don't know if he went monotube/twintube shock though.

I agree with most of your statement. However, sometimes people DO get death wobble from a BB. It doesn't happen most of the time, but occasionally it does. It'll start with minor vibes then progress from there. The best way to fix it is to have your local alignment shop do the alignment. If there's any vibes, do a 1" BL and a 1" MML and that should take care of any vibes you'd get from a BB. Like I said, most of the time you'll have no problems with vibes or DW with a BB, but there are enough exceptions out there to take note.

-EDIT- Case in point.........Tiny had a BB and was having problems with minor vibes. I don't know if she ever had problems with death wobble, but I know she had some minor driveline vibes. She fixed it with a 1" BL and a 1" MML.

if you don't wanna spend the $70+ for an alignment done at the shop, you can do one yourself!
