I'd email Mark. Better to go to the source, and that is indeed one of his first design kits, with a couple of black rubber upper mounts thrown in from the parts store. Needs washers, as you pointed out.

Nothing wrong with the old kit, I just picked up a used one from a fellow gmt member. Not sure what this guy is doing though, maybe he is just too lazy to type up a description.

I would contact him and see if he has the 4 nuts and 2 washers. Worst case, you buy them from Mark and you are good to go. There is nothing wrong with the old lift of Marks.

Go for it, the price is good. You don't have to use them but if yours have cracks or are damaged you will have them.

It can definitely save you from having to take the strut assembly apart again soon.

$100 is a good price. I paid $75 shipped for the lift kit - minus nuts, and washers. I am going to turn mine down to fit and the new strut mount has the nuts. The strut mounts go for about $25 each. I am going to replace the major components struts, shocks, ball joints, strut mounts, bushings. I am at 120k miles and this will revive the suspension a bit.

Did not surprise me with all of the other things that are so screwy with our trucks. Try this one on for surprise, girls VW has a non user serviceable trans. No dipstick, no sight glass, only a bung on the side to see if fluid comes out. You need special tools and equipment to fill it though.
