    What\'s the deal with Superlift???

    I was wondering about what I have been hearing about Superlift's kits actually being about an inch less of lift than advertised. Is this true? Does anybody know anything about this? Does Skyjacker or any others do that? If this is true this sucks because your not getting what you paid for!

    I think they are pretty close to what they are supposed to be. I have had great luck with their kits as well as almost everyone else in our group!
    The Superride springs settle some do to the soft rate, but no that much. Any spring will settle over time though.

    Hmmm, nope never heard that. I have 5 1/2" SoftRide packs in the rear and it does stand higher than my 4" front. How much higher I don't know, never measured it.....

    Yeah they settle a bit... but I assume that Tuff Country Ez-rides and others like it will as well. The BDS are suppost to be more like 6.5" when you put them on from what Shawn Says... One of the guys I rode with has a Skyjacker softride and rides pretty good... hasn't settle much... but kinda boncey and stiff... not much body roll though
