Interesting. They picture coil over shocks and not struts. What gives?
Ok my terminology was not correct. Even though website says struts inside the coil spring its actually a shock inside the coil spring same as factory has a shock inside the coil spring. We don't have struts we have shocks.Look at post #5 theirs the link to there website. You get the new spring and strut is already in it just like the picture.
Most people define a strut as a suspenion system that includes a structure that takes the place of a conventional upper control arm and ball joint.Well the strut saga continues. I emailed Rough Country saying they should change there website to say shocks instead of struts and they emailed me back and said we have struts not shocks. So I don't know what the hell we have?
A strut is a major structural part of a suspension. It takes the place of the upper control arm and upper ball joint used in conventional suspensions
While they are used interchangeably, a shock can be removed by itself. When they integrated the spring perch onto the shock, that's what technically turns it into a strut, since it now became a structural suspension component that one piece couldn't be in place and function without the other.Well the strut saga continues.

I hope that's not a Bak Flip VP. Mine died month 14 of the 12 month warranty, due to Florida heat killing their rubber hinge adhesives. Distributer went to bat for me, and got the cover replaced though. Had the same problem with the Revolver X2, but their warranty fix was sending me a repair kit.adding a picture

Tim, do you think you could run the 1" spacer on top without any issues binding etc? On RC's site it says the kit can't be used with the addition of spacers, etc. I like the design of the 2" all assembled kit and I think if you could run a 1" spacer on top and silverado 1" rear blocks it would make the perfect setup. Do you have any pics of your truck with the setup and the 275/70/17's?I installed this earlier this week on my 2019 Colorado Z71 4x4. Installation was a piece of cake (about 2 hours by myself). The fit is good and the ride is smoother than stock. I love this. I added 275/70/17 Kumho AT tires and had the front end realigned. I am extremely satisfied. I plan to take it to the desert to play next weekend.
I originally installed the Rough Country 3.25" combo kit. The 1.25" body lift (pucks and bumper brackets) was fine. the 2" (cheap a$$) leveling kit was trash. it is a spacer on top of the strut and a second spacer which compresses the springs. After install the spring is TOO compressed and TOO stiff. Ride quality was terrible. if you get this kit I recommend to install the 1" spacer on top of the strut but not the one below the spring mount.
