Re: has anyone used this rustys lift

I originally had some Rusty's shocks on my ZJ when I first lifted it and they were decent. However, the control arms were POS that used an acme screw thread and they would clunk like nobody's business. I ended up going with OME and JKS components

Anyway, I mention that, but would think the WK lift is quite simple in comparison (to adjustable control arms), so they're probably alright.

Re: has anyone used this rustys lift

the Rusty's lift is the superlift plus rear lower control arms and a rear track bar

the full 4.5" kit anyway - not sure why they call it a 4.5 inch

Re: has anyone used this rustys lift

I like Rustys stuff.

But beware..you get what you pay for.

Here is a list of complaints about my XJ stuff:

1)Exhaust did not fit and the peice bewteen muffler and exit pipe was necked down to 2.25". The exhaust was supposed to be 2.5". The chrome tip was cut and realigned.

2) A leaf spring on their budget boost broke.

3) The holes on the Tranny Skid were too small and I had to ream the holes.

4) Adjustable lower control arms had no instructions and rattled like a sunuvagun (ask JOHN R).

As soon as they carry more WK stuff, I will probably buy it.

Re: has anyone used this rustys lift

Ive seen some WK owners on NAGCA running this lift and they had no complaints, Im sure it is on the stiff side though knowing Rusty's....
