CapnDean Yeah I bought my kit off of somebody who went taller - - It was dirt cheap that's for sure... I have a set of adjustable shocks I am gonna try... BAM what a ride!

Might be hard to find new RE springs...RE is closed down for who knows how long. Plus the leaf springs were being made in India. I would look into better shocks.

but see, what most don't realize is you'll spend less money if you buy a quality kit the first time around, say Clayton off-road or Currie, than you will after buying the cheap kit and spending more money buying the quality components, trying to fix the cheap kit & make it right.

yjkid95 Shocks make a huge difference in ride. The rough country shocks or notoriously stiff. If you get a set of skyjacker hydros (a much smoother ride with them) you should notice a good difference,

dogsbollocks What do you expect for the price? Mine rides WAY too stiff, but for the $$ I can deal.
Btw-it doesn't soften up.

CapnDean My rear control arms ar both arc fab 4x4 adjustable. The front Control arms are stock upper and RC lower.

So I spose nobody has figured out how to ease off on this kit huh? I thought the springs were awfull stiff going.... Thank heavens I got the kit on the cheap.

I have a set of adjustable shocks that I can engineer to fit (both ends are bushing holes so I will need a Bar Pin Eliminator for each shock)

Or is it gonna be this way no matter what I do?
Typical for a RC lift. That's why I am dumping mine.
