I got it sleeved too, but now regret it because you can't use the ARB 35 spline. I haven't heard of many people breaking D44's though. I just did chromoly shafts too.

If you're thinking of ever doing 37's, do the 4".

Yeah they rode great with my cheap shocks. I feel like my shocks do soften the RK springs some but these springs are stuff as hell. Joe I want them back lol jk

They have stayed the same height, I got maybe 3.5-4" of lift out of them. And nah I'm not tracking RK does compensate for the weight of a vehicle.

The fronts aren't much longer than the "18" coils I ran before, maybe 1/2-1". Out back they are about 2"short than most other springs. I really feel like a dual rate coil would be better for me and it should soften up the ride. Their customer service it pretty good and they seem pretty helpful, but in 8k miles I wore out their 7/8 heim on my front track bar. I fully understand it's a wear item but 8k miles and my jeep hasn't seen mud since the lift. I shot some WD40 on it with every oil change, but it's whatever. I've got one on the way for it.

I'd love to take those off your hands but can't at the moment.

I don't need it, but what lift are you selling? (gives you an excuse to list the parts lol)

Does the lift come with your 37's at no extra charge?

When I can, I will always buy Milwaukee tools, but HF tools work in a pinch. Get on their mail list for coupons and sales. Check Sundays food ads for 20% - 25% off "one item" plus free stuff. Have a friend or family member go with and use 2 coupons. I bought a $2.99 tire patch kit, got 25% off and a set of screwdrivers for free. Cheap, yea, but even my 25 year old Milwaukees don't get abused and rarely need service. JMO.
