Ebay lift??? confused!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/RANGE...QQcmdZViewItem

Tell me what you think.. seems to make sense.. I like a lift shackle for the rear over a block.. All it is is a torsen key that ajusts futher... all im lookin for is 2 inch's in the front.. and I feel using the stock Ajuster its too far for it...

2" of "lift" with that set is the same as 2" from the stock keys except the bolts will be installed at a different height.
with the stock keys the bolts will most likely be maxed out, and with those keys the bolts will be close to stock depth.

the results and advantages/disadvantages are exactly the same otherwise.

superlift rides identical to stock being you still use your stock T-bars.. nothing changed besides it being down 4"

if you want a softer ride get RCD, the coil overs are a little more spongy kinda then T-bars

I really liked the ride of my superlift. It rode a HELL of a lot better than having cranked bars.

Superlift shocks are junk IMO, slap on some Bilsteins and it rides pretty good

In that case don't waste you money on torsion keys and save that up for a superlift in the long run.
