Rough Country Flex
 
Hi, i just got a 93 wrangler.(new to all the wrangler modding) it has a 2" body lift and the guy gave me some 1and1/4" shackles for the front and rear. I am wondering how much more flex does the rough country 4" lift have compared to stock? A lot more? a little? Thank you. Planning on off roading a lot...

Not to much unless u hit hard. Pretty stiff suspension

Personally, I think the RC lift has a great amount of flex. I don't really do the go fast stuff so my trail stuff is pretty much 1st or 2nd gear.

I have the 4 inch RC on my 95 YJ with a 1inch body lift and I have NO problems with it It is a little stiff riding but when I want to do some twisting It goes where I want It to. For the money Its a safe bet.

Just an afterthought. If you do decide to go with the RC lift, do not go extra for the nitrogen shocks. I started with them and they were a bit bouncy, even after a couple thousand miles. Switched to hydraulic shocks and the ride is much better.

so do you guys think the RC is a lot better than the stock suspension for off roading?

Yjwolf 10-10-2010 11:24 PM

Oh heck yeah. Just not better for street riding

I have a 2.5 inch RC lift on my 92 YJ. For the money it is great and it handles better off road than on road. All and all I like it.
just my 2 cents

I love my RC lift. Rides better off road than stock, on road, I have a little more body roll, but that is because I have removed the front and rear track bars. If you leave the track bars installed, it kind of has a go cart feel to it. I like the sway I get now. I just don't drive it agressivly.
