I believe they are the same thing, also you can get a high clearance long arm kit that requires welding.

The high Clearance just requires you to cut off the lower control arm mount.. No welding

if you're talking about the front axel CV, I just swapped out both of mine and it's not a big job, just needed a slide hammer puller for the HUB, a 36mm Socket, 12 point 10mm socket (I think it was). the rest was simple stuff. Remove wheel and brakes, then hub, then pull out CV half shaft. if you have the tools already (and air), you can do it all in 2-3 beers for both sides.

There's actually a complete write up for it either here or JU I forget which. Just search for it

Thanks for the correction

It's been a bit and I forgot. the brake caliper I had. Everything else, I had to take the wife's minivan to go pick up since I didn't have it in the garage already (that's how I found the write up thread to begin with)

Yesterday I changed my trans fluid and filters and installed the trans go shift kit. No more lazy shifts!

Ya i guess haha. Hey do you like your BDS springs? I was on their website and saw that they sell 4in lift springs seperate and im looking into getting them. Are they really stiff? Ive heard they are but user input is more reliable.

Yeah, the 13mm 12 pt was my downfall. I had to drive to a different city to find it. None of the stores around here had one. They're becoming scarce. Most everything sold now is 6 pt. But its a fairly easy job. Good luck WJ_allday.

They are stiffer than stock but not to stiff to impact ride poorly. I like the extra stiffness, helps with squatting and trails. Love them
