Lifted Springs Preference?

Morning,

So it seems like the my problem is the Rough Country Sagging Springs. So I was told about two other brands (Rock Krawler and MetalCloak) and I like both.

Since we only use the Jeep on the road and the beach a few times a year what is the best for the road and stability? Guess I'm looking for something a little stiffer and not worrying about flex.

Also with just replacing the springs out (same height) will I have to do a front end alignment?

Thanks

If the springs result in same or very similar height, the alignment should be the same or very near the same. Wouldn't hurt to check it though. What are you running for caster correction?

RK and MC springs are good springs. If you're running a light rig, the RK springs will net you more than advertised lift height. I haven't run MC springs, but they're progressives so I'm sure the same holds true with them as well.

Not sure what the shop did for this.

LIGHT RIG? this is the second time I heard this, what's it mean? We have a 2013 4 door.

Thanks

Do you have steel bumpers, armor? If your're all stock with no added weight then you're light.

RK springs are pretty true to height now. I had alight rig and then added some weight. The difference being maybe 1/2"
I like RK's over MC's because of the progressive rate. MC's are dual but in all reality linear the way they work (at ride height)
