this is correect.. unfortunate though.. I wish i was home so i could work on it, but the Air Force says no.. lol..

Fx4- He is taking the shocks out.. The shocks that came with the lift are the wrong ones, so we have to get differents ones. i think we are going with rancho.. Dont think they are the best, but they will do for right now... ill upgrade when i go with lift leafs in the back instead of blocks...

the differential fluid should get changed.. I think it comes with the master install kit with the gears?

Heads up, finding the correct length shocks for the front is a hard thing to do. To my knowledge, only superlift and possibly procomp are the only brands that bolt right up to the 4" lift. I wanted to run bilsteins up front w/ a jeep shock conversion up top, and pressout the stock bracket at the bottom, and press that into the new bilstein.

If it's a stud at the top, and a 2 hole bracket at the bottom, and they are for 4" lift, then it'll work. But...like i said, to my knowledge, superlift and possibly procomp are the only ones that'll work for a 98+ 4x4 w/ 4" of lift.

Yellow/Blue bilstein is a replacement for a stock front 98+ 4x4.....notice the bracket at the bottom, and the stud at the top.
