Rcd lift

Long story but i found a rcd kit that was brand new but incomplete and rcd apparently got the parts and sent them to a shop i know he has the kit atm, is it worth 2400 even? Free shipping too and no sales tax. Everyone says the superlift is better but i really like the coil overs and another inch, do the rcd lifts have cv problems or bending brackets? What would need to be reinforced? I have until tommorow to decide.

i have had no issues with my RCD and i think it looks better than the superlift. ive seen guys on here break the diff support bracket, but some simple gussets will strengthen those no problem. ive never had CV issues either. $2400 is too much for an incomplete kit though, i payed less than that for mine brand new in the box.

$2,400 seems pretty steep to me. I wouldn't pay more than $1,800(the price they used to sell for)

no they sold for about 2,200 new.

the coilovers that come with the kit seem to sag quickly and the diff drop bracket needs to be gussetted

You could always buy a Superlift and add coil-over’s. There is a guy selling the needed coil-over brackets in the classifieds section. You would come out spending about the same money and have better components, i.e. coil-over's, no spacers needed for CV's, etc.
