help choosing lift

alright guys (and gals!)
I narrowed what kind of lift I want to 2
I need help

first one:
http://www.quadratec.com/products/16190_005.htm
Comes with:
Front and Rear Coil Springs
Rear Track Bar Bracket
Rear Sway Bar Links
Front and Rear Bump Stops
Transfer Case Lowering Kit
Installation Hardware

OR

2nd one:
http://www.quadratec.com/products/16110_012.htm
Comes with:
Front and Rear Coil Springs
4 Shocks
Front and Rear Bump Stops
Front Sway Bar Links
Rear Sway Bar Links
Rear Track Bar Bracket
Transfer Case Lowering Kit
Installation Hardware

I'm leaning towards the 2nd one because it comes with shocks. Am I forgetting anything I need for the 3 inch lift if I go with #2??

But Full-Traction kits on a nation wide back-order, ask Triple88A. Who knows when he'd get it.

Why are all the kits I'm looking at twice as much money?

Because you are probably looking at full suspension systems that replace trac bars and control arms. These are just basic springs, shocks, and sway bar links.

When spending money on the suspension lift, its best to replace as much of it as possible so that it all works together properly.

x2 I have to get an adjustable front trav bar and upper ca's now because the guy I bought it from never did. The lift works alright but I havent certainly had better. Id go with a full kit unless you already planned on adding more later on.

Control arms. That's where you'll spend some money.

If you can swing the extended brake lines it wouldn't be a bad idea.

well when i called quadratec told me the lift will be shipped by that friday and in max of 2 weeks i will have the lift in my hands ready to be instaled, thats the reason why i ordered it from them. I'm still waiting, they sent me the shocks but i still need the rest of the lift. Thats why i think they wont want to refund all my money even though they lied so i can order from them.
