craigslist mid-arm kit? need opinions

Found this on craigslist, looks interesting. planning on building my 98 XJ a little bit.

http://slo.craigslist.org/pts/3868320239.html

Offered him $150 and he said he would take it, seems to good to be true. the mounting brackets look kind of iffy, but i can just rebuild them a bit beefier (welder/fabricator for a living). heck, the springs cost that much new...

honestly not even sure how i would get the dimensions I need or anything, ive been wanting to do a long arm kit, but havent had the money, this looks like a cheaper alternative (while not actually being long arms). what do you guys think?

X2. That's a damn good deal though. There is $200 in just the links and joints. Currie JJ's and Poly springs, it's good stuff there. I'd buy it if it was closer.
