superlift kit question

Does the kit come with 2 new front and 2 new rear shocks? i cant remember..

Pretty sure my rear fox's that i got that i am runnign with only a 2" rear lift will have no problem workign with the kit so im more concerned if the kit comes with new front shocks until i can afford the money to do the coilover swap.

also, how long does the stock driveshaft usually last before id need a new one? i heard it was like 30k or somethign but i just wanted to hear your experiences.

if your worried about the driveshafts, get a set made up with either duoble cardain joints at either end or swap out the u-joints on your current one when you do the lift and make sure they stay greased. if the working angles are that extreme after you do the lift, then get a set made with double cardains and you wont have a prob.

also make sure to put the yokes in the shafts after doing the lift are in phase with each other, this is probably the most critical thing to remember next to working angles.
