Sorry that should have said since not side. Autocorrect can suck sometimes. That one link is correct? Just the leafs swapped out will put it at what height i have now?

Yea, I can't go for lift after the purchase I just made. Well, I can get an inch or two higher at the most but that is all. I'm happy with that though since its my daily.

I'm gonna over build some stuff, I've looked at the DBR crossmember since it would help strengthen the front end a little. That way down the road if I get a second vehicle as a daily then this would be built up into a weekend thing.

F31's with no blocks and stock shackles is about 1.5-2" of lift from stock so you would be fine, they make a huge difference. mught sit a bit high at first but just put some weight in the back to help them settle. you wont feel a single bump on the road

Update!
I bought some parts. I ordered coils from Down south in 650lbs rate but they are back ordered. It's gonn be a few weeks from what the email said.

Ordered these also from mike's advice
Poly Performance JEEP/TRUCK & BUGGY-::-Limit Straps-::-Poly Performance "No Label" Quad Wrapped Ultra Strength Limit Strap - 4X4 Off-Road Parts
And these
Poly Performance JEEP/TRUCK & BUGGY-::-Limit Straps-::-Synergy Suspension Multi-Strap Clevis Kit - 4X4 Off-Road Parts

There will be more as time passes. For now it's a hoarding of parts.

Unloading the suspension at SL is not always optional. Stuff happens.

Indeed..things tend to sneak up on you. Kinda like snowboarding on a overcast day where all the snow looks the same and you can see the drop offs or changes. sometimes the dunes get like that and all of a sudden ouch wtf was that...or you come a little hot over a hill to find out its really a small cliff lol

Flat towing is legal as long as the towed vehicle doesn't have any play from side to side.

Some parts came in. Waiting on coils. Need to buy camber bolts, foxes for the rear and a couple other things. But not right away.

No ****, I asked my mom about Mother's Day sat instead of sun and I got a guilt trip. Lol. I love my mom. Don't get me wrong, it's just hard aligning mine and robs schedules. I'm off this weekend but have a charter Saturday night and he's busy. Then Mother's Day. I only know my schedule up to the 18th and have sun/fri both next two weeks.
