Default Looking at the rough country lift for my 2012 ram 1500

hey guys i'm looking to purchase the 6 inch rough country lift for my 2012 ram 1500 crew cab.

Its in my price range and just want to know if I should go with this kit.

I was reading on here that they changed the rear from new coil springs to coil spacers? Is this bad?

Also about the spacers to lower the differential is it bad to lower your differential?

Just want to know if this kit is worth it?
The pros and cons ? and if i should go for it?

Thanks

It's a great lift and is really popular among Ram owners. Everyone uses differential drop brackets to lift IFS trucks, so that's not a concern. But year, RCX going to rear coilspring spacers over new coilsprings is a cost cutting measure. Nothing wrong with a spacer, it's just that some would prefer a new set of springs. The only plus I see of this is a spacer won't affect the ride (you don't have to worry about replacement coils being a lot stiffer than OEM)

Go with the Zone kit rather than RCX. They still provide rear lift coils and the kit is a bit better quality overall. It's slightly more money because of that but not much.
