Is a used lift worth it?

There is a guy selling a used 4" pro comp kit from e99 manufacture date 4/98.

Will it fit on an 01?

I checked with 4 wheel parts, they said I would need to buy a box kit which is all hardware and drop bracket. So the only thing that would be worth anything to me is the front springs.

So Iam not sure it's worth to buy that used kit? I had my mind set on ICON lift until this used kit appeared. I figured out buy the time I get the box kit and hardware Iam 3/4 ways to a new one.

What are your opinions?

Price 200.00 .But the only thing I can use from that used kit is the front srpings. 4 wheel parts quoted me 1300.00 with the box kit & fox shocks (mono). So that used lift puts me @1500.00.

They quoted an 4" ICON w/fox shocks (mono)@ 2200.00

So there is a 700.00 difference

I am kinda worried about spring sag on the used kit

What do think?

Re: Is a used lift worth it?

When it comes to ICON you get what you pay for which is a lot both ways. Might want to outsource the fox shocks to maybe get a lower price and get only kit . Maybe save some. Icon springs are some of the best.

U bolts, track bar, track bar drop bracket... Other then that, there is no differance.

I would get the used one myself... but I would not buy 1k worth of shocks...
