It's not a bad deal about average. I just installed the same kit and I think the cheapest I found was around 560.00 You will need shocks.

I just did the RE3.5 SuperFlex. It gets expensive. You have to do something with the vibration in the drive line. I put the SYE, and the UCA's are going in later this week. I also had to put spacers in between the wheels to get them away from the shock tower (probably a Ford 8.8. issue) I think I am going to give it a 2" body lift as well. It's worth the money. Very nice lift, and the second generation quick releases are really cool. They are very easy to remove unlike previous generation.

i have yet to see the lift what i have been told its pretty much like bds which i can say there lifts are great but this lift comes with out the warrenty the discos and the arms are quite as good but they are better then procomp and a few others the one thing you lose with this lift that you would get with the re lift which dont get me wrong they make a great product id some day like to run there long arm as my parents do and its great but you do not get the super flex joints with the zone lift. but for the price with shocks and lowers i feel is a great price

i'm kind of afraid of the zone lift cause it doesn't come with a warranty. i'm afraid i'll end up having to replace it with a brand i trust, due to coil sag or the shocks being cheaply made. i do like that it comes with the lower control arms but it doesnt have the quick release discos. does anyone have any info that can help me make a decision? i need to buy a lift as soon as possible!

well i got a pm from dave, he works for zone offroad products. he said they are a division of sport truck usa, so although they are a new company, the have been in the suspension industry for 20 years. what do you guys think, would you try them out or not?

I find control arms with out flex joints useless and in many cases worse than stock. I'd go with RE. I remember i posted a link long ago that had the superflex RE kit (that includes lower control arms) with free ome shocks for 850-900 and free shipping.
