BDS 4" Suspension Lift for a 1979 CJ5

Hi all,
I'm looking at this kit:

These kits don't appear to include the transfer case drop kit or the pitman arm. Does BDS sell these?

Also, is this a good kit? pros and cons?

Why don't you go with this kit from 4WD Hardware?
4WD kit is a BDS
These leaf springs are BDS, and the kit comes with shocks, xfer case lowering kit, new U-bolts and drop pitman. Of course it comes with all new bushings and boots too. All you need to add to this is extended brake lines and maybe a new steering stabliizer. That's what I added to mine. They make this kit for CJ's with or without power steering. If the link didn't come out right to to and look up part number 493240
