    I am about ready to pull the plug and buy the defined engineering rear spring under kit. Does anyone have any experience with this kit. I am thinking about starting with the basic kit and then upgrading from there. With this basic kit do i need brake line extenders? also I don't have the money for shocks just yet so can i use my 5100's? Will i need limit straps? will adding 3" bump stops later be to much rebound with this set up.

    Basically any input about this kit and if doing the basic kit compared to stage one kit in the beginning is appreciated.

    I know someone running this kit. I would call or e-mail him and ask these questions, he is very helpful. Measure your 5100s I don't know anything about the 5100 series, limit straps are a good idea and you will need brake lines. You are running a deaver pack with 2'' of lift without extended rear brake lines?

    yeah i don't have any extensions right now.

    I checked out those other links. Definately bringing more questions to mind. Especially with bed saver cage. I like loading my bike up once in a while for my trips and going to have to make sure whatever is built in my bed is taking up as least room as possible.

    I spoke with mike a little bit today but had horrible service on my cell so was kind of hard to talk. Hopefully though i can get the cash together and get down to him to make my order soon. Eitherway I believe its the cheapest route with best performance at this point since i don't have $10,000 to give to DMZ to fab a LT Rear end for me.

    I don't have money for shocks right now along with the SUA kit so this makes it good for me as well since i can piece it together and keep using my truck while doing it along the way.

    What are the smooth body 2.5 that are suggested here for this kit?
