Icon and PMF seem to be the two that I continue to read about having the best ride quality.

I'd have to suggest PMF also, website is precisionmetalfab.net but I don't believe he's got the info on lifts on it yet. Trevor is the owner, his name on here is notstock.

Ride quality on my 7" is better than stock, but it's still a truck. Mine uses icon coils and shocks, which is where the ride quality comes from mainly. It also uses the 4link system to replace stock radius arms which as I understand it, provides better articulation(for all those mall speedbumps I hit haha).

Best thing by far from PMF is Trevors customer service. I could go on for hours about how good that alone is. Shoot him a PM, you won't regret it.

Another option for you is the Pure Performance 8" 4 link Coilover kit...resonable priced for a 4 link long travel coilover kit. Next best would be their 8" Desert Race System with front and rear coilovers.
If I can get you info on the Pure kits, Icon or Rize please PM

Here's a couple shots of mine as you asked for in your PM you sent me....
You asked about clearance for 37s on an 8'', and you'd have more than enough. I've got plenty, and may even have the room for 38s. On Icon's website, their 7'' kit says it'll clear 38s if I remember correctly.

benbou00 is selling his Rize 8". I was considering buying, but have to much going on right now. I rode in it a couple of weeks ago. It has a pretty smooth ride, but like stated above it is a truck. It has more of a bounce to it than a a short jerk when hitting bumps.
