    Definitely not the body lift. This is a nice suspension lift that comes with coilovers and rear add a leaf. Lots of people around here use it...

    As far as installation there are plenty of threads around here that can help you, my best suggestion would be to get a few buddies on the weekend and tackle it!

    Here's another one, OME. A bit cheaper... but you do need a spring compressor i believe.

    Spend the next two days, browsing this forum, DO NOT TYPE ANOTHER WORD :) Spend your time in the build threads and the how tos. You will find more information then any of us cares to type right now :) This horse is beaten beyond death...

    Seriously... not trying to be an ass... but build threads are the way to go.
