difference between 2wd & 4wd lift kits (93-97)

i want to lift my 2wd 94 about 4 in and i'm having trouble finding a lift kit thats less then a $1,000. i found the lift kit below and was wondering if it would work. It has the drop down brackets and blocks. I don't see how the brackets would differ so i was just wondering. Thanks

TAKNOTES- i thought about it and that was my back up plan but i don't really care for them that much so i was trying to avoid it if possible.

REDNECKSTONE- thanks that helped out a bunch. i figured they were different but i thought i would check and see.

Depends on what it'll be used for. I've heard Rough Country is a bit cheaper then others (Super Lift, Camburg, etc.). But if you wheel once every couple months I'm sure it'll hold up fine, maybe someone with experience with the kit can chime in.

hijacking my own thread here but do ya'll think 4inches would look stupid with 31's i'm fitting them stock now but i want to get some air between the fenders and the tire. Maybe possibly getting 32's next time around. rough country recommends 31's but i figured i see what ya'll thought.

If any one has that set up mind posting a pic. thanks
