Well I don't want a four link or anything of that nature because I want full use of SUV rear area so I thought this will be the best way to go with leaf springs and all...

probably not. You might just have to remove the shocks and springs (if they have springs). Have to bolt some pieces in, that's for sure.

yup with the front with the bolt up if it gots coiles up front most likely you can bolt it up
in the back i don't know what i was smoking the other day but i was thinking lay frame why dont you bag of the frame with over axel brackets like these

http://www.justairbagit-store.com/product....lt.asp&ID=24232

the only reasone i am against bags on the leafs is they can come off i have seen more setup's like that go bust then i have seen work though it could work i just have not ever seen a good one done like that besides it just won't look as clean a setup like that

I understand about the front... thanks for the help! :thumbsup:

But the back I am still a little confused on... basically the kit you listed will take the place of my leaf springs? Because like I mentioned earlier I don't really want to cut not any floor boards...

you can heat the leaf springs like 6 inches from back shackles to lower them and then put those bag and brackets in or you can remove some leafs out of the springs you know you can run a 4 link parallel to the frame you wouldn't have to romove spare tire or gas tank or anything basically it will mount close to where your leaf front shackle is and rear shackle just a thought

but you can heat the leafs remove some leafs or find lowered leafs
then put the over the axel bags if you dont want to eliminate the leafs thats how it's gonna be and the only cutting of the floor board will be like a hole for air lines

The Top of the Mounting kit either bolts or is welded to the frame of you ride. Be SURE TO KEEP IT CLEAR of the brake line or any kind of line.
The bottom of the mounting kit in this case you might have to weld it to the axel of your ride.

for twenty dollars more you can get a full bridge kit with all mounting hardware and shock relocater from www.suicidedoors.com . Thats where i got mine and its awesome. and I have air over leaf and have not had trouble with it yet. It works great.
