The D&D kit is light, but not the lightest. AJE is by far the lightest kit out there.
The D&D kit does not allow you to run stock A-Arms, so you must get the entire kit.
The D&D Coil-over kit is great. You can use the stock Struts, but while everything is off, you might as well replace them also. I used Tokico Drag Struts, and they are great daily drivers, and track performers.
The motor mount locations are the same for the 96-02, so you do not have to worry about bolt locations.
I believe you can still get the entire D&D Tubular K, A-arms, and Coil-over kit from www.jdsperformance.com
for cheaper than anyone else will have it. It was $599.00 for the whole kit when I purchased it.
Good luck, and if you need install notes, let me know, I have a detailed installation sheet from my experience, because the instructions that come with the kit suck big balls.
