So I'm running into a little bit of a conundrum here. Another company based out of North Carolina (HRG Engineering) has developed and released a 1.25" level-lift kit (which includes sway-bar end links, sub-frame spacers, camber bolts, etc.) for the Bronco Sport Badlands which is the same amount of lift that Woolworth Motorsports has for the Badlands. They both seem to be made from roughly the same quality materials and are fabricated right here in the USA. The only thing is that the HRG lift that is being offered is almost $200 less than the Woolworth Motorsports lift at $339 vs $525. I believe they both offer lifetime warranties on their spacers, so I'm wondering why there is such a huge discrepancy in pricing since they both seem to be offering quality products. I finally have some extra money in my pocket due to a bonus at work and want to make sure I'm making a quality purchase when I bite this bullet. I would love to put some 32s on my Badlands in the future, so I want to make the right purchase that will last. @FordBroncoLifts, I realize as time goes on, you will have more competition in this market, but could you say how your lift application compares/contrasts with this application from HRG Engineering? Also, if anyone else has any hands-on feedback/expertise with either of these companies, please share your experiences in this post.

Yes, it is. The HRG lift is 1.5 inches for a Base, Big Bend, and Outer Banks while it is 1.25 inches for the Badlands. You are correct.

similar indeed.My kit is more expensive because I use more parts. Besides the front strut spacers, rear trailing arm drop, and rear coil spacers My kit includes a rear sub frame drop to keep a better ride and rear suspension geometry. More steel, more bolts, etc. that is why there is a price difference. Plus I specialize in Ford only models with all my kits. Looks like the other company specializes in Honda’s and Subarus and is just trying to dip into fords. All good either way you pick. Plus I am a 25 years veteran of off road racing so that might help. Lol straight from the horses mouth. Have a good one. ???

What is the difference in the labor like, for us mechanically challenged folks? And I see the tire guidance on your site (thanks for adding that), how does that work with 245/70/17 on a BL+BL, if I picked up the kit for the 1” from factory plus the 1.25” from your kit? Would I be able to get away without any cutting, or is that just the way it goes if I want that size tire? Also, I noticed the HRG one has optional camber bolts — I’m not familiar with those, is that something you include?

Well said from the retailer. Truth is if you're doing off-road research and haven't come across Robby Woolworth you haven't done enough research.

Looks decent, kind of a hybrid of the RC kit and the Woolworth kit. How come the description says " FOR OFF-ROAD USE ONLY"

We just installed this HRG Engineering kit on our Outer Banks and love it. Deferentially worth it. I talked to Ben multiple times and his team is very friendly to work with.

Here is the video we did installing ours talking about it.

Did you use the camber bolts? I purchased them but will probably take them to the alignment shop if they are needed
