Hey All, Another first time poster here. Firstly, thanks so much to the contributors on this forum, its incredibly helpful. I've been reading this forum for days and days. But looking at my options here in Canada puts a slightly different spin on things... My 03 KJ (3.7L) is all stock with sagging springs needing new gear all-round. OME 927+948 is obviously the preferred choice. Only problem: these springs are $300 in Canada. Front struts also $300 ea and rear shocks $200 ea. So I'm looking at $1600 CAD plus tax (12%) plus strut assembly, plus installation, plus bumpstops, so about $2500 CAD total. ($1800 USD) [edit: revised above costing] This is too much $ for me and I need to find a lesser solution with better value. Stock replacements with no lift would be a minimal upgrade, so I'm considering this to be my lower bound of options and the full OME kit the upper bound. Is there something in between? My objective is to access the mountain logging roads here in Squamish (Canada) including the occasionally severe waterbar. I'd like to be on 245/75 tires with a 2-3" lift over stock height. The RC 3" kit is $450 CAD. (Yes, I understand why this kit sucks.) I could pair this with stock-length Monroe QuickSruts (assembled coil+strut) for $110 ea making $750 CAD total plus install. I totally understanding that the driving experience would not be the same as the nice full OME specs, but seriously, would it really be so awful? Seems like it would replace springs with new stock equivalents (not high performance, but at least new) and be an improvement by adding lift to allow larger wheels. If the weak rear springs sag out in the future, or the Monroe struts wear, I could replace those with the OME parts as needed. I'm open to other options if anyone can suggest something less than "the best" (=OME=$$$). I guess I'm not clear on the specific mechanical/maintenance risk associated with the RC lift in terms of the spacer which goes under the front strut/springs. It seems to me like the CVs and control arms are in the same angle/position as with a new/longer strut/spring. Also, when you add the Teraflex bumpstop, does that not also reduce the suspension travel to the same? I know people are going to yell "RC is crap, spend more money." But can we unpack this a little please. Its 1/4 the cost for all new equipment. So if its also 1/4 the ride quality and offroad capability, maybe thats a reasonable approach for someone on a budget or looking to ease into the investment. This kit is more attractive to me than the Daystar given that I want to replace springs allround regardless of quality and lift. Last sub-question: Anyone used these Dobinsons springs+struts/shocks? Some folks tout them as OME equivalent in quality, and I may be able to get them at almost half the cost of OME here in Canada. The website says 35mm lift though, which would be a shame. Also not clear on the spring rate (if the front springs equal OME 925 or 927 for example). So those are my main questions: 1) Mechanical issues with the front end of the RC kit considering new stock-length springs+struts 2) Dobinsons spring stiffness and ride height. 3) Do the new bumpstops reduce travel to stock? Thanks in advance!
