YJman Yeah I was going to get the braided stainless steels. And okay I'll grab an extra set of spring bolts. Anyone know where I can get the frame shackle bushings?

And nice Jeep teamhirev looks good

ironmike08 I would have the shackle bolts on hand its nice to have them if you need them.I just lifted mine this past weekend and had to cut the 4 bolts at the frame bracket.I was spraying PB Blaster for 2 weeks, all of the nuts cracked loose,no problem,but couldn't beat the 4 bolts out of the bracket.Always safe than sorry if you don't need em take em back

teamhirev MY RC 4" RC lift. Remember don't over torque the shackle bolts. That will make your ride really rough

Mitchness Sorry to hear about your tire, man. Sidewall punctures make me sad.

If you need to get brake line extensions I would seriously consider just getting extended braided lines. You won't have to worry about relocating any brackets and tubes and your brake performance will be noticeably increased. Trust me, they're worth the slightly extra $$.

YJman I always doubted RC too but for $250 I couldn't pass it up. Plus, if they sag I'll just replace them

And okay thanks a lot. Do you have a link to the bushings? I can't seem to find them..
And I think I'll be able to reuse my stock bolts. They look to be in good shape from the outside but we'll see. I need to buy my brake line extensions yet.

Sadly I popped a tire tonight while offroading. Big 2.5 inch gash in the sidewall. Thank the lord for the spare!!

Should I buy new spring bolts? (the ones that go through the shackles)

I heard I should buy new frame shackle bushings? Any input or links on this?

Thanks everyone!! I'm quite excited

White are the upgraded spring and yes replace the bushings, There cheap and your going to be right there.

I used my old shackle bolts, but they were in great shape. Check them when you get them out.

This is my 4"RC, stock shackles with a 1" body on 33's.

So far it's been fine. No complaints.

Mitchness Don't know about the spring quality. I've always doubted RC so...

But beyond that you shouldn't need to change your bolts or bushings unless they're in bad shape or unless the spring eyes are bigger/smaller than the stock bushings. I rocked my stock bushings and bolts for a year after my lift 'til I got ahold of greaseables.
