Do a 4", most leveling kits do not provide radius arm drop brackets or track bar brackets to get things in proper geometry. Meaning a crappy driving and riding truck. Bds icon are the most popular. There are also other good ones out there. Just make sure you get everything right or it will drive like ****.

Icon 4.5" is awesome. Traction bars were also mentioned in an earlier reply but my experience so far with this setup is that they are not needed if the truck is not tuned for more HP. Your results may vary, though.

Lets start with what year your truck is and what you're looking to accomplish with the suspension system. How do you drive? Are you looking for a better ride or just taller ride height?
