I just installed that. I did sua with the Ubolt flip kit. I also used MORE's rear shock extensions with the shock tabs from the soa kit. Gets everything above the bottom of the axle.

Thats exactly what I did, same exact thing. I am very happy with it and the guy there I spoke with is very helpful with any questions. I also bought the MORE front shock hoops a well.

You really could just get the perches and such cheaper individually. But more makes a full swap kit, as do a few other companies

Here is a link for the rear shocks. It relocates the top of the shock so you can have longer shocks or in my case, not have the bottom of the shock so far down on the axle. There is also a picture of the front shock hoops.

They are for the front shocks. I broke my shocks at the stud mount so I got those and put them on so I have the eyelet mount shock up top.

The idea is to get everything up above the bottom of the axle. Look at your d35 and you'll see how the shock mounts tend to be down. Also Google 'Ford 8.8 in yj' and one of the first links will be a write-up from jedi.com. study it. It's for an soa but tons of good info on the swap. Look at his shock mounts vs what's in the kits.

Also compare the soa vs sua pictures for the install kit. You should be able to tell a diff on the shock tabs.
