The quick discos should still work but I would ditch the cam bolts. My experience with them is that they do not hold their adjustment for even a few days. I tried them and ended up welding plates over the slots and using adjustable arms. Does the kit have a T-case drop?

I just installed the Zone 3". The kit comes with everything you need. The only thing I had to purchase is new bolts for the rear shocks...

yep, I just put that lift in mine last week. Only thing I needed to buy was sway bar disco's, other then that everything is there and it rides way better then it was before.

I had that lift and installed a MML instead of the t case drop.I added 3/4" spacers up front for a more level stance and re-drilled the axle side front track bar bracket instead of buying an adjustable track bar.

I;ve had the Zone 3" lift in for a little over a year now. For the most part I am satisfied, the ride is a little rough, but for the most part its good. As far as everything you need, yeah the basics are all there. However, I just ordered a full set of Savvy adjustable CA's because I wanted to get my pinion angles right again. Also, I will be doing the MML and losing the TC drop. I still have vibes with the TC drop.

I just purchased the Zone 3" kit, JKS front adjustable track bar and steering stabilizer. But I didn't purchase the cam bolts. Should I order these? The lift isnt installed yet.

I didn't use cam bolts when I did the 3" lift, it could use a little more caster in the front but it's good enough for now. I'm going to get some rokmen control arms anyhow. The rear shaft is fine with a mml and stock arms, I have a rubi though.

Yeah you should be. The cam bolts are needed though. I didn't have them when I installed the lift but when I went to get an alignment they installed them for me.

When you doing the install? I should have mine done next Monday or Tuesday. I didn't like the idea of drilling the hole for the trackbar so I got the adjustable front trackbar also. Hopefully that works out.
