Agreed, but probably not needed for a 3.5 inch lift.

You got it pretty much right. Track bar isnt a must but is recomended. If you do get one, deffently get a adjustable double shear with a new bracket and a heim joint.

I needed brake lines for my 3". They were stretched when flexed with the tire strait. If the tires were turned, they would have been yanked off.

It means that it has those two bends in it. It helps with flex.
