4 inch lift....now an RSK?

Hey guys, Ive been reading all day, on my phone so forgive me if I missed it posted some where, but I wanted to get a nicer ride out of my OBS and was looking at an RSK kit, probably the SKY. Okay, so my question is, if my truck is already lifted.....I believe its a 4 inch, thats what the old owner told me at least, and I do the 3 inch RSK will this result in another 3 inches of lift?
There isn't any blocks, and the springs sit fairly flat so Im not sure if they are lift springs or not. Im already running 37s and have no clearance issues... I don't really know what I have haha.
Would there be a better way to improve the ride quality? Also looking at the rear springs in the truck looks like put the overload spring under the spring pack, it looks very odd to me...Ill take some pictures tomorrow to help expain it better.
Anyways, thanks for any input or info you guys have!

Got the Sky RSK kit front and rear on my truck with what I believe are the stock springs. I have the 4.5" kit, it is supposed to give better ride quality. I dont know... I think my Last truck rode better with the 4" Rough Country springs. I am planning on upgrading my springs to SD V-codes with 2"add-a-leafs front and rear. So will result in 6.5" total lift. I will be running 37's myself.
