3" rough country lift w/ rear springs

I was wondering if anyone is running the 3" rough country lift with rear springs. I want to know what the ride is like and if you ran into any steering issues. I see that the kit dosn't come with a drop pitman arm like some other kits do, so at what point is the drop pitman arm neccessary?

Im pretty sure with a 3" it has everything you need. If ride quality is a concern, Ive heard the Rusty;s 2" is one of the better ones.

Thats the kit i have in my wag. I added 1" front shackles and 2" rear blocks to mine as well. I have no drop pitman arm and no steering issues as all. It rides pretty good in my opinion. Ive ridden in rougher lifted vehicles.

I did the 3" lift with rear blocks on our 88 Waggy. I got the kit with rear blocks and will forever kick myself for not getting the rear springs. (Didn't know the rear was sagging as much as it was.) We like the ride and once you get off the black top, it is actually quite impressive. No problem with the steering at all.

I was looking at these today. I was going to get a 2" from BJ's but the price has gone up making look else where. BJ's 2" is now $30 less then his 4". That makes the 3"RC lift look great.
