    Mine came with the lift kit. I got a bunch of stuff from different companies but I think the spacer was in a superlift box but I'm not 100% sure. Even with the spacer though I had to length my d-shafts. The spacer just helps clear the cross member.

    depending on the pinion angle, the setup may bind in the cv, mine did, till i got rid of the cv all together, i would recommend a new shaft, i made mine with the 10 or 16 spline slip and stub, i dont remember, which will never wear out and spine like the stock stuff. i make driveshafts at my shop in buchanan ny.

    I had alot of binding in the cv too. I just took a grinder to it and haven't had a problem with it since.
