patrickstarfox well, what happened is i measured the difference and sent an email with pics to RC about it. they said that it shouldnt have sagged that much and sent me some 1/4" spacers for free. but i needed WAY more than 1/4". mine needed about 2" up front to level it. so i took the RC spacers to the local 4x4 place and they took em from me and gave me $20 toward a set of Daystar 1 3/4" spacers. they were a bitch to install, but that did the job. im prettymuch level now and it looks nice and rides fine.

but the lesson to be learned from all of this is that you shouldnt have to go through that much trouble. idk how tight your budget is or how made up your mind is, but i would seriously consider saving up a little more to get a nicer lift. after having mine for a year, i can say i wont buy another RC lift. maybe next summer ill sell mine to a friend who wants a cheapy lift and ill save up for a really nice 4" lift and do it all right. long arms and adjustable steering compnents and the works.

UpstateSCWrangler Thank you both for your input.

Patrick - for future reference, what spacers did you end up putting in the front after the sag issue?

what he said exactly. i have that lift. mine sagged in the front after a few months and i had to put spacers to bring it back to level. but other than that im happy enough with it.

now, if had known how much i was going to love my jeep, i would have saved up for a nice quality lift, and maybe gone with a 4"...but thats just me. the RC lift gets the job done.

Suspension Question

Looking at purchasing a Rough Country 2.5 suspension lift. The question I had was with running my stock 15's with 31 x 10.50 tires would the back spacing be ok. I think I should be ok from what I had read but just wanted some input from the local experts. Thanks in advance.
