It is just a 5" lift and it is also discontinued. So finding one is not the easiest

You could get the superlift and use the coilover conversion kit from ORW

You can do the body lift with the RCD too you know.

There isn't much height difference between the two lifts. About an inch

Look for a used superlift.

Used Superlift and used BL is probably the cheapest.
