What is the opinion of Rustys lift kits? I have a stock 93 YJ looking into a lift kit and looking for any one who has delt with him and his products. <IMG SRC="smilies/question.gif" border="0">

Are you going to install it yourself? If so I will sell you a procomp 4' lift with shocks and tc drop, the complete lift for $250. I live in Buford GA. I was going to sell it to someone else but they wanted me to install it and I would remove both track bars and the front sway bar and I don't want to do it on someone else's jeep. that is the way mine was for a year before I soa.

I ran a Pro-Comp 4" lift for years. There's absolutely nothing wrong with them. For a 4" spring under lift, it flexes well. Put on the springs, lose both the track bars and go for it.

I am running Rusty's 3.5 lift Sprung over and they are working very well. Rusty is a good guy to deal with from what I've seen. I had a Procomp 4" for 2 years SUA before I did the spring over. I highly recommend the Procomp it is the best lift SUA for the money especially at that price. I only used the Rusty spring becuase I sold my Procomp and did a SOA then decided to go higher but I didn't want 4.5" which is pretty standard with Procomp.

I ran a Superlift 3.5 for about 9 months and loved it.

If your using it for tough stuff though, i dont recommend it. It flexes awesome and such but i bent my front spring and broke 2 spring centering pins on the rear springs (yes my U bolts were tight)

Rode and Flexed nice though!

I ran one for 4 years as well..

theres several tricks to installing them

First never over tighten the spring eyebolts, mine were just past the nylon lock nuts

Second invest in decent shocks. the procrap shocks suck

third, lose the rear track bar, keep the front..
