Have you price the kit new? By the sounds of the shocks and *****ty springs it might be worth investing for some piece of mind, of new parts.

How many kays did the kit do and how do the bushes look? Talk to a mechanic about its condition.

If the bush's check out to be ok. I'd be interested if i was you. Thats really cheap as long as its not really old and clapped out gear.

How are you running 5 inch with out any arms? I'd thought you'd still have adjustiable panhards, draglink and control arms at least?

But if they are ok sounds like an ok deal, but it could be cheaper, or same cost just to upgrade the missing bits, I'd prefer new over second hand any day

Anyway that's my 2 cents
