RK lift and quick struts ........
best advertisement there is for doing it right the first time
because soon after you want to do it right

Yes it comes with all four springs and all 4 shocks
Get the 132L rear shocks they are longer and give you more flex if you ever need it
Also order teraflex front bumpstops, good insurance policy so you won't overcompress the shocks, 2 hockey pucks in the rear drilled down through the lower spring pad and you're good for a 2.25-2.5 inch lift when settled in

Cheap spacer style lift, very bad on suspension parts etc.
Most all who get one swap it out soon after for a full spring lift

Rk- rock krawler
It's not a spacer lift. It replaces the lower fork of the struts.

Yes fully aware, but same thing basically , still just a bandaid approach to lifting one

Like the RRO and Rustys spacer lifts they make excellent door stops, or thats what I use them for

So could I order all this, minus the pucks of course online?

You can go to Mike's off road in HAltom City, Red River 4x4 in Mckinney, or Affordable Auto on Virginia Pkwy. in Mckinney. I know and have used all of the shops over the years and know all of the owners. They will all give you a square deal.
