Talking 2008 f350 4x4 4 link or radius arms?

I'm looking to get a 6 inch lift and hear that using the stock radius arms puts to much stress on the front end with drop down brackets. So I was looking at procomp and fabtech to get on of the 6 inch kits with radius arms then I see Rough Country and skyjacker offer a 4 link system. Is there a difference in ride quality, durability or 4x4 capabilities from one to another. The kit is going a 2008 F350 4x4 Dually that's now living the easy life.
Thanks

4 link means 4 individual arms, where radius arms are two arms are that are connected together into one and then starts to split to act like two arms toward the end when it connects at the axle. Rough Country bushings are junk. Don't know about the rest but do your homework on "kits".

so it's more preference than it is function or is there an advantage to the 4 link or vise versa?

Ive launched mine in 4 wheel before so it helps in preventing axle wrap.
