Icon or RCD will come with Castor shims..just swap out yours no Alinement needed just recenter the steering wheel with your drag link..5 mins. both come with longer springs and shocks.

You will have to get a adj track bar to recenter the front axle as it will shift over 1/2-3/4"

We carry both, PM me if you would like a price or additional info.

if you do the install yourself you will need TALL jack stands. i was using 12 tons from northern tool. the install is really simple as long as you have the right tools.

I installed the 2.5" Readylift SST kit. I documented it with photos, etc. Have a look here if you care to read up on it:
It comes with everything you need, even a block to lower your drive shaft...
