I like mine and have no complaints. Not to mention, my ride is a lot better than stock with my set-up.

Go for it, I'm sure you won't regret it. Not to mention, it beats paying full price.

I really liked the kit when i had one. Nice kit, my only complaint was the sway bar links, they made a lot of noise. But They were worn and I didnt replace them...

33's will be fine with 4.10's, but it wouldn't be that great with 35's. If you plan to have the gears changed then obviously either would be fine.

superlift + bodylift can easily fit 35s. you can fit 33s easily with just the superlift but if you want lots of room to flex then double lift with 33s it is!

The bolt...no easy way to fix it. You're gonna need the special tool to unload the key off it, then torch the bolt between the key and the bolt head or torch the keeper block thing. Then get a new 'keeper block' that the bolt threads into and obviously a new bolt.




Unloading without a tool: just unbolt all your crap up front to full droop: unthread adjustment bolt, take off torsion key skid plate, unbolt upper shock, swap bar link, CV shafts(maybe), then just take out the 'keeper block' that the adjustment bolt threads into, then lower the key and slide the bar out of the LCA. Might need someone to push down on the LCA in order to remove the block, but the 3 sets of keys Ive pulled/replaced came out like butter.

But then again, you've got the adjustment bolt stripped out problem...so you'll need to do it ALOT safer way by using the proper tool.
