I'm not a big fan of Rusty's after buying their shocks. During the summer, 2 months after install they were rusted. If you do get their shocks do not use the bushings they provide. Get some polyurethane ones from Autozone and use those. The give you crappy soft rubber bushings that will start squeaking on you after a few months of driving.

The worst part of a rustys lift, THE SHOCKS! If you bought there shocks without a kit that is just dumb they are horrible, I agree you should get other bushings but just spend some extra coin and get some quality shocks


I painted my brothers rustys shocks gold, nothin like payin a little tribute to kid rock

Rustys sucks............

It's really hard comparing RE to Rustys.........

Its like comparing Black Label to Sam Adams

If you are looking for RE, contact Ironman on here or over at www.glfwda.org, best price you can find on a RE kit.

Well I appreciate the input from everyone. Opinion against Rusty for a TJ seems universally a negative.
