    Default Which leveling kit should I get?

    The title says it all. I'm stuck between Skyjacker and Ready Lift. The skyjacker is like 130 and the ready lift is like 230. I don't get the 100 dollar difference for the same thing. 2 polyurethane coil spacers. They are both 2". I have seen others on the Internet for around 75-80 bucks too so I don't get the price difference. I think its just because of the name brand but that's why I'm asking you. Please help!
    Thanks

    I'd go with the Skyjacker. Some of those cheap spacer kits split and crack.

    The ReadyLift is not poly.

    I never had an issue with the dealership not covering something under warranty while I was running my level kit. I chose to pay the extra money and get the ReadyLift. Still do not regret the money I spent on it. Just my $0.02

    Have the Rough Country, it is poly, but I have not had any problems yet, and a guy I work with has had the same kit for over a year, with no problems, kit was $65.00 locally at a off-road shop, install took about 1 1/2 hours, and to get front end aligned cost $90.00.
