I have had this lift on my jeep for about 8 months now.. and have hated the vehicle since doing it.. the hard ride i could life with (it's like a brick) but i have weird driveline vibration ever since i put it in. especially at 60-65.. tires rebalanced and had the thing re-aligned 3 times and even watched the last guy do it to make sure it was dead on. I am told it's cause the front is lifted too high and putting a bad angle on the CV's..

Was just curious if anyone else has had the same issue?

P.S. think i found my issue finally.. i never bothered to measure my ride height before.. because.. you put it on and it works rigtht? and winter.. i'm sitting 3/4" higher on the passenger side than the drivers.. so looks like i might have got some bad parts. Will be ordering the bilstein to get it fixed up..
Sorry to hear about the poor outcome. I heard another person also saying they had vibrations from this lift (unless it was you) but they said sfter getting an alignment the vibrations went away. It would be good to know exactly how much lift you got. There have probably been thousands of people who are running the RRO 2.5" lift and I don't think I've heard any reports of vibration from them. They should be changing the CV angles more than you. Also many of them run bilstein 5100s with them which gives them about 3" total lift in front and there seems to be very little issues reported. I have slightly over 2" lift in front and 1.25" to 1.5" in back and I have no issues what so ever. You could always go back to OE or bilstein 5100s and sell your kit on ebay. Hope you get it figured out.

Yeah it was probably me.. i have been fighting this issue for quite awhile.. it seemed fixed then cam back. i am hoping the vibration is from one side sitting higher than the other.. either way.. when i go over bumps in the road the side thats sitting higher doesn't seem to compress or rebound as nice as the drivers side.. so i think it's just a bad strut. going to order the bilsteins and put the eibachs on Craigslist.. someone might want the springs.. thanks

And yeah. i seem to be cursed with this thing. the only issues i have had have been suspension related. Was going to trade it in but the dealer only offered me 26k with 12k miles.. so screw that. will fix it

They are about as thick as you can go and still utilize the upper mounting bolts. They sell them fore about 41 to 42 and 10 or 15 shipping. I will be able to sell them to you in a few weeks when My Icon Coilovers get here bc I wont need the spacers any more. Did you search for .5" poly TJ spacers? that is what you need, unless you went with .75" which will give you a total of approximately 2" lift in back(.5" springs and 1.5" TJ Spacers). Would probably look really nice actually. I can even sell you the spacers through ebay and can put them up now so you can buy them. I'll make a listing and then send you the link. I will put them up for a competitive price. I'm not even sure you can buy two of these at a time. They are the same ones I've heard of a few other people using without problems, so I bought the same ones.
Can I use the RRO trim packer kit with the Eibach. I have the Eibach installed but i rub when im too agreesive over bumps (ride with Nitto G2Grapplers 285/65/17). I going with 1" Tj spacers in the back as the .5" Eibach lift is not enough. thanks for your anticipated reply.
