4" all spring lift???

Hi all - I'm looking to put a 4" lift on my truck but I'd prefer an all spring system rather than blocks. I've been looking at a BDS or ICON but again all I've found are kits with front springs and rear blocks. I am wanting a quality sysem that still can handle heavy loads. Does anyone have ideas or suggestions?

I prefer to keep the factory springs on a 4-6" lift. It allows you to keep the factory overloads, air bags are easier to install and the spring quality is generally better then the aftermarket...

There is no issues with blocks, so long as your not stacking them. I just replaced my blocks a few month ago with these...

You never use blocks in the front. Never ever.

I used the icon 4" lift. Better ride then stock and retains payload and towing capacities. It gives you the option of leaving your factory blocks in the back or removing them. If you leave them in your truck will still have the stock rake with the front sitting about an inch and a half lower than the front. Kit came with everything you need for install including a track bar drop bracket and a drop pitman arm.

Hummmm...

NO!

Spring fronts and a single 5.5" block in the back. With a 2" add a Leaf for the load capacity I need (Truck weighs 8800+ pounds just driving down the road)...
