Do you mean you have the RC 2.5" Springs in front and 2" BB spacers in the rear?

$99 for what exactly? Springs? Spacers?

Just wondering....

havent had a chance to completely flex out yet, but just from a little flex they look fine, but will have to wait till i can really test it out, been busy with school and work and havent gotten to wheel much except muddin which is gettin old, takes to long to clean

jonrjen I purchased my spacers off of Ebay. This sellers only offers spacers made out of delrin not poly. The poly can give settle over time, where as the delrin properties do not allow this to happen. The other nice thing about the delrin spacers is that should you want to install a 2" lift in the front, simply install the spacer. If you want a lesser lift in the rear say to take out the natural rake (factory suspension sits lower in the front) of the Jeep you can cut the spacer down to allow for doing such.

Cons_Table Most coil spacers are the same. Like Wrangler06 said, you should invest in new longer shocks if you plan on wheeling much. You should probably get a kit that has bumpstop extensions as well.
