national 4x4... ? just an idea


like bigphil said you can do it yourself in the driveway but a set up shop would be handy

Not sure what you mean by this.....do you have the right kit for your application, or are you trying to make parts for another kit work on your truck?

No expert, but seems to me modifying a kit to make it fit might not be a great idea for suspension parts?

What sort of mods are required?

I'm with SVT4MT on this if a lift kit isn't for your year and model truck, I wouldn't be modifying it to make it fit your truck being it's to do with suspesion
