I've had them for 3 months now and will say they are great. Most people will say they are stiff, and they may be, but I prefer they way they ride compared to the stock ones. The stock springs always seemed so bouncy to me, these are just more like a truck should ride.

Plus, I think they make the truck look great.

Yes they will be stiff hence the name Rough Country. stock springs won't bounce with good shocks.

No mater what you do you will need to get a adj track bar or correctly made drop bracket to fix the axle shift from the lift and longer shocks.

You would be much better off with a mini spring pack..uses stock length springs, or hangers..need longer shocks as both will keep the ride quality. Still need adj track bar etc..

Yeah,it does stiffen ride up a little-but it's a truck,mine's a f350 crew lb,if I want a car ride,I'll buy a car
But mine came with the heavy track bar mount with the kit and leveled truck right out-did have to buy longer shocks though,just measured mount to mount and local off-road shop fixed me up with what I needed.
