Zone lift

Well its time to lift my truck. I've looking at Zone products and am going with the 4". The question is, should I go with the 4" radius arm kit? Or just their regular 4" kit? Pros and cons? I've already ruled out Carli or Icon. They are not in the budget. I will most likely upgrade the shocks though. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks.

How does their regular kit lift the front if its anything other then a Radius arm drop.

I will, either the Bilstien 5160 or the icon shocks. That way I get a better ride. But I don't know if I should go with their kit that has the radius arm relocation bracket, or the kit with new longer radius arms. What do y'all think? There's about a $300 price difference.

I'm running the 6" with radius arms. I would spend the extra 300 they look great and are very well built, I also upgraded to the fox shocks. I have had billstiens before and would take the fox over them any day. The upgrade cost for fox was only $275 and well worth it.
