please do not pull my comments out of context and twist their meaning. no where did i say that $800-1000 was a fair price, good deal, or the best way to go.

i was comparing the price difference between the kits and the included components. RCD uses bilstein c/o shocks where SL uses super-ride shocks, that incures a price difference. a replacement RCD bilstein c/o cost <$500 each. there is your price difference right there. what is the replacement cost of a super-ride shock from SL?

sure you can get c/o shocks and kits cheaper. you can get a fox that nearly drops in place of the RCD bilstein for ~$240. you still need springs, but it cheaper than the bils. there are countless other c/o shocks available, many im sure even cheaper than the fox. but thats not the point. RCD used bilstein, that costs money in and of itself.

my point was that the price difference between the kits can be attributed to the differing components, in this case the c/o shock vs. the traditional shock. i.e. if one were to say, buy a SL kit and convert it to bilstein c/o's, the price difference in the end would be negligible.

i really dont see what any of this has to do with 16" air-shox for your suzuki.

I've got the 4" Superlift as well. And believe me, it gets used. And it's held it's own so far.
