Search is your friend its been talked about alot and also alot lately. just go in suspension you will see tons of threads just on the first page

the kit is very straight forward for install. if you can handle a wrench and know what suspension parts are your fine its constructed well. remember to get a new SL driveshaft or make your own your stock CV driveshaft wont last long

I have a Superlift w/ coilover conversion and it's great! The install is straight-forward, basically un-bolt stock parts and replace or lower with Superlift parts. You could do it with hand tools, but an air compressor and an impact makes it much easier. I say go for it!

I could take some half-complete pictures. I will have everything completed and pictures up by the end of the week. I worked on it most of the day and got all the coilover gussets and various other brackets welded on. My only problem is finding time to finish it, which is why I won't have it finished till the end of the week.

You can do it without air tools. Just make sure to spray everything with WD-40 before hand. And you will have to look around. Like what was said, some have them and some dont.. but look around, you'll find one. I

If you are going to go to all the trouble and expense of buying and installing both lifts, why just 33's? Of course this is just my opinion.
