If you are considering other mods, like open drive or updated front end, it's best to do everything at one time. If you can't, like for reasons of time, money or shop space, do the bags last.

What front end do you have?

Are you planning on laying frame or just want to be able to adjust ride height?

There's kits out now you can buy, Jimenez bros makes a pretty good kit or you can build your own set up.

Skip all of the cheap stuff, buy good components.

I just bagged my 51. I used a JG Design and Fab rear 2 link, Air Lift Performance management, and modified the stock front end.
