With the 3.5" gold standard kit, do I need to change the drive shafts? or can I still use the stock ones? Or do i need to change anything else? From what I can tell with the 2.5" kit I shouldn't have to worry about the drive shafts.
Ultimately what I'm looking for is a kit that one installed, I really don't have to replace a lot of other stuff like drive shafts. This kit will be installed on my daily driver and I would be driving it 98% of the time on the road.
A lot depends on the shocks you decide to use with the Gold Standard kit. However, generally, the kit does not require you to replace your drive shafts. On our JK, we ran with the stock drive shafts for a couple years before replacing them.
The biggest concern with the drive shaft is clearance. Depending on the year of your rig, there are certain clearance issues with exhaust, evap canisters, etc. But, for that 98% of daily driving, your stock drive shafts will be fine.
On a second note I was looking at the offer that you are running on the gold standard kit for the gold coin. If I buy a coin and don't receive it by the 4th of July could I still call and order the kit on the 4th of July would you still honor the special even though you don't have the coin in hand?
Yes, if you order before you have the coin in hand, we will honor the special. We just need to receive the coin before we ship the kit, of course.
Last question....Is the only difference between the game changer and the gold standard kits the old man emu shocks, Rear track bar, and brake lines?
Yes. The Gold Standard was set up to have a full kit, ready for someone to put in whatever shocks they wanted. Down the road, you can add the track bar and brake lines and 6Paks to make the full Game Changer (the Old Man Emu shocks are not available outside the kits).
Thanks for the great questions!!!
