Upgraded to the coil spring setup over the spacer lift and I have to say what a great upgrade! I feel like the factory ride quality has been restored and then some. Much better absorbing bumps and much smoother overall ride. I also feel like my turn radius is better and handling has improved. Highly recommend this over the standard spacer lift if you can!

Thats awesome! Yeah I’m on the road quite a bit and drive through Newark often. Im jealous of the hemi, it would be nice for a little extra power. The intake helped a bit, but could use 10-20 more horse.

I can’t wait to get a leveling kit for mine and bigger tires. I do love the power of the hemi and cheap upgrades you recommend. Did you have Infinity auto install your lift? If so how much did they charge

Yep infinite audio did it for me. They were very reasonable for the install. Maybe $400-$500?? If your going to lift It definitely go with the full suspension upgrade and not just the spacer lift. Take my word on that as well as others on the forum, you’ll be ,Isch happier with it!

most of the lift kits are only for the V6 not the Hemi that's the problem I'm running to trying to find on lift for mine and also the tow pack with the self leveling shocks. Do you know any kits for the Hemi?

Sorry to jump in but I just did old man emu front struts and hemi springs, old man emu rear hd springs and kept my self leveling rear shocks by adding a shock spacer from ironman 4x4. I’m very impressed with the lift, ride quality is great. Just my $.02.

Bc09, you said that you went to the full suspension from the spacer lift and it is a lot better. I have the factory tow pkg on my 21 Laredo x and have been told that because of certain sensors, I am not able to do anything but the spacer lift from RC. Towing is something that I need for a few things. Have you heard anything like that?

I do have a question for anyone though. I have been piecing together my tire/wheel mods. I have the Altitude Apperance pkg 20" wheels that I am planning on using. I purchased some 33X11.50R20 Venom Power Terra Hunter R/T Plus tires that I plan on putting on the factory wheels. I also purchased the RC 2.5" Spacer Lift. With this info, I am assuming that I will need wheel spacers. Anyone have a guess as to how much space?

There are no sensors. The self leveling rear shocks with the tow package do the job internally. Only sensors I had were for the auto leveling headlights but they attach to the control arm and not the shock. If you don’t do any off-roading I’d say the spacer lift will be fine but if you do any off-roading I’d say go with a full suspension lift. I just got back from a 300 mile round trip camping trip towing a trailer with my set up and it towed exactly like stock. I did old man emu front struts and springs and just their rear springs with shock spacers from iron-man 4x4 to extend my load leveling rear shocks. As far as tires, 33” won’t require wheel spacers but you will need to do the pinch weld mod, no way around that. I have 32x11x18 on factory offset wheels and it clears everywhere. Your half inch wider tire shouldn’t cause any issue. 32” is close to the pinch weld, 33” will make contact.
