Do RK coils sag? Or is this a fixed issue?

I'm currently researching lift kits (2.5, 4-door JKU) and I saw posts from 2015 about coil sag with RK lifts.

Couldn't find anything recent, and I couldn't find out if the quality control issues have been resolved (if there ever really were QC issues to begin with)..

that being said, looking for a 2.5 lift kit with a budget of up to 1.8k

I bought a 2.5” RK lift in 2013 and have put approximately 70k miles on it. I have not noticed any spring sag. Granted I don’t have a lot of extra weight on mine. Just Recon/10A steel bumpers front and rear.

My rear coils from my RK 3.5” that I installed in 2014 sagged. I added a 1” spacer to offset the difference. Just a steel bumper in the rear.
