That would really depend on what you want/ expect from the kit.

If you are looking for more travel, and longevity at longer travel... then, yes.. coil over is the way to go... the Fabtech one with the Dirt Logic C/Os is the winner...

The shocks are the make or break..

What are you looking for?

Chase

99.5 4R, 4wd, S/C, S/B, Leveling Kit, 315s
4" DP, straight pipe, Gauges, TWildman 6pos. Flipper Chipper

A wise man once said nitrous is like a hot chick with a STD...

You know you wanna hit it, but, you're affraid of the outcome.

SkyJacker has my vote... Fabtech kit is like 6k and the skyjacker is way less than that....

My truck already has a 4" lift and I like the amount of lift it has with big tires its about all the lift I want, but I want the ride, and travel or many other good points of the coil overs. The Skyjacker seems like a good price for the lift. I just would not want it in red. I wonder if the skyjacker is US made, I hate the cheap china steel.
