The header cracks on all of them but its so easy to fix. Start to finish was a breeze. plus it gave me a reason to check out everything else and replace the gasket for the hell of it.

Get leaf packs if you can afford them, blocks suck and so do add a leafs, in my opinion. The ride will be far better with no AAL.

As for lift being only for the d35 thats false, the only differemce the axle makes when you are putting a lift on is the type of u bolts you get with the kit. D35 are smaller width wise than the 8.25, you just have to specify which axle you have when ordering the kits and they will send you the right U bolts.

I have never had an RE lift kit but I have heard tons of good reviews on all their parts/lifts.
