not 100% sure, since I have no lift, but I have read here that they are called "rough" country for a reason. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

Did you get the standard lift kit? or the easy rides, i have the easy rides and it is alittle firmer than stock, but not harsh, and i also have nitrogen gas charged shocks on it.

tuff country is one of the best, correct?

Yep, BDS and tough country seem to be the favorites around here. If I was doing my lift again I would have custom springs built, for ride quality.

As mentioned before, i don't know about the standard R.C. springs, /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif but i have the Easy Rides by Rough Country and i am happy with them, it's not harsh, but still firmer than stock, IT DOES NOT RIDE LIKE A DUMP TRUCK. /forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif

Might wanna check out the shock combo, it does and will make a difference on the ride quality, i know, i have been through this route with different shocks. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

yep, Rough country here too, front and back, rides pretty stiff but I don't mind it unless I find a big bump. Cruising down the highway its not bad at all.

Mine actually flexes pretty well, with no swaybar of course, their stiff enough for me that I don't even run a swaybar at all, its gone, didn't hardly notice any difference in handeling. It flexes well enough that the brake line brackets that came with the kit are not enough and i'm buying some of those napa brake lines for my truck because I don't want to pop a brake-line on the trail or something.
