any of them, they are all pretty much the same, if you want it quick, don't get it from Rocky-road, and trail-tough is good but it takes 9 business days once UPS gets it for it to make it to michigan.

Can you fit 31's under a SPOA (4.5") and 33's under a 6" lift? Any trimming needed?

I believe yes and no

my Samy has a 4" lift I believe, sits about the same as one with a SPOA, 31's fit nice, 33's fit but rub alot in turns and flex, I dont' know it 2" more lift would stop all the hitting in flex.

but go buy it

Ive lifted a bunch of samis by spring over I usually use 5" lift spring perches U bolts/plates lower shock mounts longer shocks longer brake lines drive shaft spacers and a z drag link or drop pitman arm or a high steer kit to get 33 to fit I cheet the ft axle foward by moving center pin hole in perch /spring plate back a inch or 1.5 "s back
(33 s & no ft rub) I also turn the rear helper spring over and have added a extra leaf to ft to help keep the flat springs from reversing arching
