Rough Country Level Kit Thoughts

What do yall think of the Rough Country Leveling kits that replace the springs. I was looking at the kit on the internet and it dont seem like a bad deal.

They will ride rough! If you want a factory ride do a hanger kit or a mini spring kit and get a set of Bilsteins.

Maybe a Hanger Kit would be the way to go. Any one got any suggestions on a place to get prices?

Anybody know how much my Ranch Hand Bumper with grill gaurd weighs? With the extra weight I wonder if the Rough Country kit would work ok? Anybody tried this combo?

I don't know if this would happen to the Super Duty, but I've seen other 4WD's break springs with the short spring kits, so I'd be a little concerned about the high stress points put on the factory springs where the short springs end. Plus full length add a leafs give a much better ride since there is more surface area to go across.

Rubs a small amount full left turn but Its not much. The only wear problems Ive had is due to me not rotating them at all. Havent rotated them but 1 time in 10 months and its just now showing. Will rotate this weekend.

This rough country kit came with a whole new set of leaf springs, u bolts, shocks, and all ness hardware for under 300 shipped

Where did you get your Rough Country Kit? I found some on ebay for around 400 shipped. Rough Country wants even more.
