AHHH!! I see now.

Well there are a few kits out there but I don't think you will find one that will do the whole job in one go. Because each spring over lift project goes a little different than others, each kit will have parts that you won't use and will be missing other parts that you need. For that reason I didn't use a kit on mine. I made some parts, picked up some parts locally, reused a few parts, and ordered the rest.

I can give you rough parts list to go by and a few tips if you like, but I wouldn't bother shopping around for a complete kit.

If it's your first rodeo, I'd leave the SOA alone. They are not cheap. No kit is complete. They lead to steering issues. If it is your first lift, I'd go with a nice spring-under lift. You can get everything you need for around $500 to $600. A lot of people on here have gone with the Rough Country 4" lift. Check out the reviews in the lift section & see for yourself.

x2.

SOA done right will run around $800-$1000. You'll also need access to a welder and someone who can weld the spring perches on to the axle tubes.
