Post Superlift question and RCD question

Okay so i know you can buy the full kits...But can you just buy the dropped crossmember and drop brackets and thats its??

Like i hate the shocks that come with the superlift, if i wanted to go super then can i just order everything except the shocks and be cheaper ( i mean id buy different long shocks of coarse)

Or for RCD, can you just buy the crossmember, 750 Ib coils, and leafs or whatever

it would be cheaper in the long run to buy the whole kit.

you need knuckles, and other components too. what about the diff? what about the brake line brackets, what about the swap bar links? etc...

well the parts list might not be on their website.

TRS? Not sure

But there are many pieces to get your truck lifted, not just the drop brackets.

Here is the install manual I posted for the RCD, its has a parts list. And I think Zach is right it would be cheaper and easier to just buy the whole it and be sure you have everything you need, especially if you don't know exactly what kind of parts it takes to do this.
