D.R. Icon suspension questions

Hey guys I am interested in putting one of the Icon 4.5 lifts on my truck but am tore between the shackle lifts or the full leafs. Anyone have the kit with leaf springs? How does it drive/handle. I have done some lifts before and been pretty dissapointed with ride quality. The 350 rides rough enough already. Looking for pros/cons from anyone. Appreciate any input

I have a Rubicon 4.5" lift on my 01 F-350 CC SB. The kit is all springs, I did not want spacers or shackles. The ride quality is very nice actually. But it's still a 2001 one ton striaght axle front end 4x4, so it ain't a real soft ride to begin with.

Icon's soft ride springs are 10x better then our stockers. My truck with a 12.5" lift kit rides as good or better then a stock truck...

Yeah I know what you mean. You won't be dissappointed. Just make sure you get a good set of shocks.
