        I have 4 shocks for a 3-1/2" lift. I would like to but these springs on and also add a leveling puck for the front. What size puck should I use and will the shocks I have work? Thanks!

        Can I use the stock sway bar end links?

        I have a rough country 4 inch lift on my Jeep now, I wanna lower it down to this 2.5 inch lift can I is my shocks from the 4 inch lift?

        I have newer shocks on my 1998 Jeep Wrangler 4x4 Sport 4.0 L, it lifted it about .5"-1" with just the shocks. Do I absolutely need the shocks that go with this suspension lift? I saw that it made it a lot more inexpensive. I understand that it is recommended, but will it mess up my car/driving without the rough country shocks? I just don't want the shocks that I had previously installed, go to waste.

        • The Rough Country 2.5 in. Suspension Lift Kit w/o Shocks can be used with a different brand shock. As long as the shocks are made for a 2.5 inch lift, you would be able to use it.

            Great height

            Great height for adding 31s with plenty of travel. Easy install with a spring compressor. Would be difficult without.

            2.5 Springs

            Exactly the height I was looking for. Paired with a set of Rancho’s, huge ride quality improvement from stock.

            Just Right

            The finish on the springs is perfect. There are no scratches or chips in the finish. I have driven about 150 miles since installing this kit on my truck. The ride is smooth. The stance my Jeep has now is perfect. I did use a Rough Country 3/4 inch spacers on the front.

            2.5 inch lift springs

            previous owner put in 2 inch spacers. The jeep was always hitting the bump stops when 4 wheeling. I liked the ride height, so bought the 2.5 inch springs. Lifted the jeep about 1.5 inches more than with the spacers. No more hitting the bump stops. The ride is smother than the stock springs and spacers.

            Great Lift!

            Bought this lift to replace some Budget Boost spacers i put on my jeep that rode kinda rough. Shipping was fast and I installed the lift in roughly 4 hours in my garage without any power tools and only a spring compressor (you will need it). Springs ride good and made my Jeep look awesome!

            Great product

            I replaces the stock springs and 2" lift spacers on my 97 TJ . The 20 year old springs were a little saggy. These springs are exceptional quality and added a little more than 3" lift over stock. Installation is straight forward BUT , you need to use a good coil spring compressor . I have no complaints about the ride, it is a Jeep after all !

            Check everything twice

            I called and instant message the asking if this was everything I need to do the install. I was told by two people it was. The shocks were wrong and there wasn't a track bar adjustment part with it. I would definitely recommend checking parts. Springs were great and love the way it looks

            Better control and ride

            I used these springs on my 2006 rubicon with 33" tires. I also used bilstine 5100 series shocks. It was a little stiff for the first 100 miles but now it's smoother than oem. Thanks, Nice product.

            Great Value!

            I needed some new springs and shocks. These fit my needs as I didn't want to deal with all the modifications needed with a lift kit. I didn't realize how bad the other springs were till these were installed. What a difference in ride quality. The ride height is taller and I would say it is a little more than 2.5 inches. Added the transfer drop and the ride quality is truly amazing compared to the stock shocks and springs. I would highly recommend these springs.

            Solid springs

            Progressive rate springs have great droop and offer advertised light height. I went with skyjacker hydro shocks as rough country seems to have quite a few shock issues.
