Ok, well i got 2 (too poor for 4 right now) 35" SSR's for christmas. Anyway, I mounted em on the front for a test fit and can already see im gonna need a 2" body lift and POSSIBLY the 2" extended Hill 4wd Shackles. I'll probably do the body lift first, since i think that will give me enough clearance. My 3 questions are these. In the 2" flavor, what body lift is best bang for the buck? Which has strongest components, and the best instructions etc. Next is, when i ('less i decide to pay to install it) do the lift, should i replace my body mounts? Ive looked at them all and they all look almost perfect, no cracks visible and no chunks missing. Finally, how hard is it to install a 2" kit (with or w/out replacing the body mounts)? Will i have to lengthen any linkages for transfer case or the transmission? Also ive seen a steering column extension on some 2" kits but not others. What is that about? Is it needed? Ok, sorry for the length, and apparent lack of knowledge (which i do lack) but i dont want to start this thing, and warp body panels, break wiring (which i hate wiring btw), or screw up all the linkages, and then have no way to get it to a shop that quoted me $375 for the kit and install. Which btw is that a good price? Also since its a long bed does it have extra body mounts? Thanks again.
