Re: Rancho lift

Don't do it.  The leafs are junk.  They'll sag out in less than a year.  Faster if you wheel it.

Not by much... Springs are REALLY stiff. Ride really well (cough) with RS5000's... Boxed lower arms will grab tire lugs more than stock arms.. Rear leaf packs are not too bad.

In other words get something else

Re: Rancho lift

The rear leaves are only 1.5" high. Company states that is intentional in order to level the vehicle. Both my rear leaves sagged and were replaced under warranty. Sold them before installation and went with RE.

My experience was not good. Kept getting asked when I was going to lift the rig.
