Tell them to refund you the amount for the shocks and just get a different brand, they dont have to be superlift shocks...although if they know that you are going with a different brand shock they may not warranty anything...just a thought.

You can go a month without the superlift driveshaft.

Build your own front shaft...you'll be spending double buying it from superlift when all it is is a shortened expo shaft with an adaptor...

I agree, get some other shocks and either build your own shaft or run the stock one for a while. I've heard (never used them) that superlift shocks kind of suck anyway.

That sucks bro. Don't have that waiting problem with my RCD, it should be here on May 5th. THANKS QUASI!! But, I still have to order shocks and get rear lift components. Bilstein seems to be the way to go, I've heard nothing but great things about them.

I'm curious on how to make a good driveshaft instead of paying $500 for the SL one...I'm gonna do a search on that right now...
