No, because that price is outrageous for a crappy lift

Sniff around the lift/suspension section, get familiar with it, then go with either the Billy/Eibach setup or the OME/885 setup. If you want to get in a little deeper, adjustable coilovers are available from a handful of places as well.

You could get Bilsteins + Rear AAL for cheaper than that.

That SJ lift is the same as a Bilstein minus the ability to adjust the perch. The SJ perch is already there yeilding the lift.

This specific thread, that is a year and a half old... references a strut lift that is more expensive than the preferable Bilstein 5100 lift.
