Re: take body lift out?
OK, to hopefully answer your first Q's and this:
It will come with a longer upper a-arm to give more travel. From what I have seen it also come with CV boots that are supposed to handle the angles better, so maybe that's the deciding factor.
You're right about the T-bar cranking, but this is no different from any other lift kit. Most other lift kits come with a bracket that will lower the front differential to keep the driveline angles almost stock. You get your lift through cranking torsion bars on this as well, and the bigger tires you put on it. You actually don't gain much clearance from the undercarriage.
Don't know what the rear springs would do. To be honest I don't plan on using them, but using some cu$tom Nationals or Deavers. It will probably stiffen up the ride a bit.
Any time you change the height of the vehicle or put more weight on it you will experience a shift in the center of gravity. You will just need to get used to it, that's all... this happens with every lifted truck. I'm not so sure that 2" will make or break you in tight turns.
