    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.

    EZ Lift/Pro Comp 3" lift. Spacer in front, add a leaf in rear, Bilstien 5100 shocks, TC UCA, 5% Tint all around, Painted all trim to match. Magnaflow muffler dumped, drop in k&n air filter, tinted tail lights
    Just buy a spacer lift!!! They work fine! Not had any problems with mine and I have 30k miles on it with many off road trips!

    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.
