Re: The Bolt-on SPOA is finally here!
The different level thing has me confused. Rancho, Trailmaster, Skyjacker, ProComp and the rest offer their kits as a all-or-nothing. Why would you expect Calmini to do so differently? There is no money to be made piece-mealing things IMHO.
Let's be frank. As for costs, most of the Zook owners are beyond cheap. Those folks who want to build stuff themselves or seach around to find even cheaper shocks are not the kind of folks Calmini markets to. There are those people who want everything in one box and then there are those who really don't care about the money thing. Those are the folks Calmini markets their products to. That is where the money is.
All in all, for those folks would didn't WELD a suspension system, who are just now deciding on which suspension to go with or those (many) who don't have access to a cheap or free welder, than this kit seems to be geared for them.
Likewise, this is kit that doesn't limit future suspension choices. One could install and use this lift for a couple of years and then move on to something like a coily or 1/4 eliptic. Simple bolt-on/off. AND they could sell off the kit and recoup the some of the cost. The same can not be said for the weld-on SPOAs.
Just my opinion.
