I have the 3"RC lift on my 08. They leaked all of the oil after a year. You would be better off just spending the extra $450 and upgrading to the 4" Bilstein 5100 shocks. They are a much BETTER ride!

I have a 3" rough country also. I switched to bilsteins also. Way better ride. Not near as much body roll as the rc. I find I can turn sharper
