What was needed to change in order to add it to the Superlift? Just longer coilovers?

Yea just a 2"longer travel shock, I need to brace the drop brackets to be safe, as for the rear setup I have a pair of 2.0x12" fox rezis on the way and that's all I can afford for a while :p

Tires are doing great! Will buy again, Aaron sent me the straps but they were the 11" that a stock heigh truck uses so I had to go buy some 14's. As for bumps.. Yea superlift bumps for now haha Thanks everyone for the comments!

DBR kit:a few grand,
gas to take my dad for a drive: a few dollars,
seeing the grumpy old man giggle like a girl when airborne:priceless

No was the kit supposed to come with them? Aaron told me the way my radflos are valved I shouldnt even need hydro bumps, I'm stupid and have no clue what I'm doing so I just use his advice one thing I need to do soon is a 6" tender coil to make it ride nicer on the street (it's a bit rough)

I'm sure I'll go hydro eventually though, I'm just flat out broke after losing my job a few weeks ago so I'm just happy it's all drivable right now
