    Default RC vs. Readylift

    Hey guys, I'm new here and have a quick question regarding a leveling kit for my 2011 CC. What makes the readylift system so much better/ more expensive then the RC kit. I just don't know if I can bring myself to spend 4X the money for the readylift kit unless it is far superior. Thanks in advance for all your help!

    I ran the ReadyLift kit for over a year and zero issues and the truck rode great. I think the main reason for the price difference is the material used for the parts and maybe some R&D cost in there too. The $200+ for the ReadyLift seems to be a lot when put beside the $70 fro RC but really what is $200 when you are raising the front of your 30+k truck.....All in all they do the same thing, but I chose ReadyLift. Hope that helps.

    Nothing really makes the RL kit any better than any other kit out there. Leveling kits are leveling kits. I don't like some of RC's products and I don't like some of RL's products, but both leveling kits are good. If it were me, I would get the RC leveling's easier to install and a lot cheaper.
