Used lift kit... Good value or not. Old Man Emu / skyjacker

There is this kit for sale not too terribly far from me. All I know is the obvious, OME springs (3" I think), skyjacker 7000 hydro shocks, hardware, and pitman arm. He is asking $450. I currently have my heart set on either 2 or 4 in zone off-road kits. They would be 500-625 new.

I'd shoot for half price for used. You don't know the real history...or missing parts. No warranty etc.

Yes. overpriced. Id go 150-200 IF he had a recent pic of how the jeep was sitting just before removal
Notice the reverse curvature near the rear perches...looks like its sagged out.

Might want to find out why he took them off. (maybe it didn't work good or was squirly on the front end) Why buy what you dont want without a warranty. If $ 150.00 is the difference and you get a warranty seems like to me its a No Brainer. Just saying

He is parting out the whole Jeep. I will be going new. The only reason I considered this is because I hear such good things about OME.
