Alright, as some of you may or may not know, the rear springs on my recently installed RK 2.5" Max Travel kit have been completely falling out when the rear axle is fully flexed. The only working theory I have is that the Fox 2.0 IFP shocks for 4-6" lifts -- which I selected based on the recommendation of several vendors and experienced members on several forums -- are simply too long for this kit.
I'm willing to make these shocks work, though, so I just need help with a few things:
1. Is anyone else running this specific kit and shock combination on a newer JK? (Mine is a 2013 JKUR) If so, are you also experiencing the same problem? Did you solve it?
2. I contacted RK and an engineer there suggested I order the Currie JK Rear Coil Spring Retainer Kit -- so I did. Since then, I've read several threads on various forums wherein owners of newer JK's were not able to install the upper retainer included in the Currie kit. Has anyone here successfully used this kit on a 2011-2013 JK? (I plan to call Currie on Monday to discuss this, but I figured I'd ask here first).
3. Is the Currie kit really the best solution, or did the RK technician steer me wrong?
Any help or info would be much appreciated! This problem is keeping me off the trails right now, which really pisses me off, so I'm desperate to address this situation correctly.
Thanks ahead of time!
