i think the only difference would be your torsion keys but that shouldnt matter anyway

The difference between K357 (98-99) and K358 (00+) are the knuckles. You would have to downgrade to 11.2" rotors if you used the K357 (98-99) kit.

wonder how much itd cost to get new knuckles from superlift cause this guy is local and only wants 500 for the entire kit or would it just be easier to downgrade to smaller rotors for the time being?

Ya i mean thats an option but getting this and buying the new knuckles gives me the time to save for better shocks. Then im going to have to try to work with ORW on having them make coil over brackets.

You think anyone would buy the knuckles for 98-00 ?

I don't think ORW will make the coil-over brackets at all. They had too many complaints and issues with them. You will probably have to have them made locally. Any welding and fabrication shop can make them.

I really can’t say, maybe someone needs some spares.
