Their kit for 4X4 uses Torsion bar keys on front rather than springs and the same flip kit for the rear

Update I did have a vibration around 30-40 mph here’s what I did to solve it.
Used shims on axle and plate on trans tail shaft that came with kit for proper pinion/driveshaft alignment, ( I thought) after playing around with it this weekend I found the trans needed to be raised just about 1/32 of an inch added a homemade shim to raise tail shaft. Like magic vibration all gone. I am going to play with it some more to see if I can get same result by changing shims around/out and spacer plate at trans.
FYI everything I found told me angle of pinion is between 3 and 6 degrees
