Finally I was able to stop by the post office and pick up my lift. It looks like I'll have to wait till next Saturday to get the lift done. The shipping was super fast. They were shipped on 3/8 and delivery attempted on 3/13.

Sweet! I wish more companies made lift kits based off springs cause that's the proper way todo it really. I can't wait for these to be installed man!

I thought I'd provide some feedback on RRO super-sliders after having them on for a week. Call me crazy but now the Patriot seems to be one solid piece, no creaks or rattles when hitting potholes or going over the speed bumps. It wasn't so quiet when new. I think FWD mentioned similar results after installing his.

That is good to know. I hear body creaks and groans all the time gong in and out of NY driveway
I hear the same just after waking up and getting out of bed. :)

hey TJN, I had a couple questions about your lift...


You ended up getting the STU coils right? If so, how difficult was the install? I am trying to decide between getting the RRO or just getting new coils. Anything I should know in advance since I have a FWD Pat?

What ya did is stiffen the unibody by bolting the sliders on.

@Brohio

Not sure how difficult was the install as I had a shop do it for me. Since you have FWD I think you have the same clearance as mine pre-lifted. The choice is yours which lift to get but I like the idea that my rear won't sag anymore due to constant load coils. I love how Patriot handles now. The only con is that the struts are too short so it might bottom out on occasion.

Interesting you asked. I ordered it online, the next day I get an email from the seller stating they refunded my money as the manufacturer discontinued producing it. I then go to CariD and chat to one of the sales rep who confirmed they had one in stock. I got all excited and placed my order through him with an estimated ship date of 5/10. This morning I receive an email stating it's on back order for 6-12 weeks as the manufacturer only makes it once ordered. I didn't want to cancel it at this point as nobody else carries it. I guess in 12 weeks we'll see where we stand with this.
