just be careful of the shocks... bushings are real bad to pop out and work loose... known from experience with these lifts on jeeps... but for the price you cant hardly beat them

thats the kit I got. Had to order a second set of shocks due to having quad shocks. You will need extended brake lines, the sway bar drop (optional if you wanna keep it), and shock boots if you prefer them. I am however going to replace the blocks in the rear with shackle flips next year because after being schooled here reading a lot of lift posts...I dont want blocks. Its fairly easy to install if you have half a brain and some mechanical skillz.

I hate rough country, I had it on my bronco. I plan on buying a superduty after the winter and rough country makes a cheap 8" lift. I contemplated for all of 5 minutes about buying it, but then I remembered how shitty my bronco was over rough terrain.

Well they don't call it "Soft Country"

At least it is truth in advertising.

Does anyone know what spring rate they use on there coils?

I can't recall I do have it favorited on this computer (my work computer) or my home desktop or my laptop. I'll have to see if I can find it.

IIRC stock front springs are like 340 +/- 20 or so. Rear springs however are like 370. If I'm not mistaken, most companies (skyjacker, superlift (excluding EZ ride) are 410 and rough country is 440-450 I'm pretty sure

***EDIT
Here I found these this info in my favorites-- This is lift springs for fullsize ford bronco (believe for 79's, but would be close to the 80-96 style)

Brand-------Bracket Material thickness---Coil Spring Rate
Trailmaster--4"-----None Given----------560 lbs per inch
Rancho-----1"------N/A-----------------459 lbs per inch
Rancho-----1"-2"---N/A-----------------380 lbs per inch
Rancho-----3"-----.19"---------------- 460 lbs per incharch
Rancho-----4"-----.19"-----------------460 lbs per inch
Pro Comp---4"-----.25"-----------------475 lbs per inch
Pro Comp---6"-----.25"-----------------450 lbs per inch
Superlift----1"-2"---N/A-----------------400 lbs per inch
Superlift----4"-----.25"-----------------445 lbs per inch
Superlift----6"-----.25"-----------------445 lbs per inch

ALSO -- Came across this info---

Bronco Graveyard: 3.5” Lift Coil Linear Rate(Superflex Coils from Deaver)
Part # 13206 190 lb/in <--- these are old style, new style is 300/inch
James Duff 3.5” Lift Coils Progressive Rate
Part # 5107 225- 445 lb/in
Rancho 3” Lift Coils Linear Rate
Part # 6403 485 lb/in
Superlift 3”-3.5” Lift Coils Linear Rate
Part # 13202 415 lb/in

And then the stock OEM specs for fullsize fords (the C# on left is moog stock part #)----
Also noted in RED is the actual spring rate so there is no confusion
You will notice 2 #'s per applications (4 for the f150, due to 1 is the supercab model) It's front, rear, front rear etc
