    I see that 4Wheel Parts sells a brand called Genuine Suspension. I figured this is basically a private label kit for them, does any know who actually makes it? Has anyone used their stuff?

    I'm going to buy a simple 4" kit for a daily driver so I don't need anything jazzy but I don't want springs that will be flat in 6 months.

    Thanks for the help!

    I believe they are Pro-Comp springs. Very rough riding or at least mine is. No Sagging though.

    Yes, they are Pro Comp springs in there. I have the 6" kit.
    Very stiff rough riding spring.

    nvrenuf... don't bother trying to save money by going with genuine suspension, just about everyone who has em hates em (me included) and plans on getting rid of them ASAP, so save your self some money and buy a good suspension from the start. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Muddysub, what is it that you don't like about the springs? Is it the ride quality? I'm not really concerned with the ride quality, I just don't want to waste $300 or so on junk that will sag in a few months.
