    What kind of mods are needed to use the zero rates? (brakes, steering, etc.)

    no real mods are needed. of course you need to make sure your brake lines are long enough to accomadate the added 1" of lift, and if its up front you'll have to adjust your drag link.

    its not different than another other AAL really.
