Is this a good price for this lift?

    How much is shipping?

    Here is the seller I bought my Rough Country lift from Clicky

    He has the lift for $459 + $85 shipping. For about $30 extra he will send a new steering shock also.



    :D

    Nope, different company. The Tuff Country will probably ride a lot better. The Rough Country rode fine for me, but many people think it is a harsh ride. I bought the 6" version of the kit, and all the plastic spring spacer pads fell out. I bought some quality spring pad things from a local spring shop and then everything was fine. All the paint fell off of the shocks and the shafts are nicked and rusted.

    If you are looking for the cheapest kit, Rough Country is the way to go.

    Would I buy it again? Yes, but only because the price is cheap.

    If you want to do it right the first time around, Go with tuff country or BDS suspension. They will give you the softest ride and better flex. BDS has a no questions asked lifetime warrenty also.

    Which is good, because my friend has 4" BDS springs on the front of his 2003 Chevy 2500HD, and he gets a new set about every 8 months. He always bends the main leaf.

    This company http://www.rockymountainsusp.com/welcome.htm has the same kit for $461. I have done business with these people several times, and they are good people to deal with. They will not play any games with you about shipping prices.
