4" Superlift new shocks, clutch and flywheel

Hey guys, I'm new to the Forum, but have gone through tons of threads looking for advice, now I've joined and I'm looking for some more! :) I have an '01 XLT 4x4, 4.0 SOHC with the R1HD trans. 4" superlift running 33x12.5-15's. She's my DD and I put anywhere from 20-30k miles on it a year.


I'm looking for new shocks, but I'm not dead set on getting superlift shocks. The original ones wore out faster than I would have liked. I'm running into fitment issues with other brands. Does anyone have some other shocks and struts that they have used and know would fit my set up? My intended use us mostly road driving, however I also am on log roads quite a bit so I need them to be durable and take some abuse on the back roads.


I'm also looking for advice on a new clutch kit and fly wheel. I do a lot of hauling and pulling with my rig, so I'm in need of something with good clamp force and won't slip if I'm hauling 1/2 a ton up a steep grade. (Yes, she's a 1/2 ton.) :) I've looked at the centerforce DF and a few others, but I hear a lot of mixed reviews on pretty much everything out there. I'm not set on the centerforce due to price and longevity. I really like the reviews for the series II, but they don't make it for my set-up from what I'm seeing. Also looking for a new flywheel, because I can't afford to have my truck down while it's getting resurfaced. None of the stuff I'm looking for needs to be crazy performance products either.

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated!

About the only thing I can comment on is the flywheel. Be prepared to order online. I couldnt find one at any of the parts stores around. I ended up picking up a LUK flywheel for about 70 bucks.

Thays what I was looking for for a flywheel. It seems like they must be high demand though because most places don't have them in stock. (Just my 'luk'!! Haha)
