This kit was awesome. I ordered from the website and had it shipped for free to a supplier in the area so I could pick it up. A few options that I added to the standard kit:
1. Factory replacement steering stabilizer - $51.22
2. Dana 44 U-bolts - $34.60
3. Shock boots all around including steering stabilizer - $14.62

I did not add the bushing kit or the extended sway bars because I already had these.

The kit came with every thing that I needed except extended brake lines which is something that I think they should offer.

It was easy to install in a few hours. The instructions were great and told me step by step everything that I needed to do and even offered troubleshooting tips for drive-line problems.

I did use the rear shims in adjust the drive shaft angle, but I did not use the t-case lowering kit, although I am noticing some vibration at higher speed so I may install it to see if that fixes it. I did have to shim the front as well as this kit significantly changes your caster angle. Will have to get a better fix for that later.

The drop pitman arm put my drag link almost perfect and I have no bump steer.

The ride is so much better that whatever kit the PO had installed. Once the front shims were installed I had no sway, no bump steer from the start, and my kidneys are being treated much better.

This kit comes with a lifetime no questions asked warranty on the springs. The springs also have a full militarily wrap in case of breakage at the shackle or main eye.

Ugh. Hate riding in my jeep on trails now. Bounce everywhere. waiting for the wife to approve budget for new springs. Friend has a Black Diamond 2.5 inch lift, much softer. Maybe its the inch and a half difference, but the ride is so jarring.

It's actually the 6 inch but there was no option for that.
