I would think an adjustable track bar, new shocks. I am not sure about the carrier bearing.

Drop pitman arm too
Any reason you don't want to just buy a kit?

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

4" lift what do I need

Drop pitman arm, drop track bar bracket, drop sway bar end link brackets, brake line relocation tabs or longer brake lines. Carrier bearing shims.
Buy a kit, it much easier.

The main reason is so I could up grade to the bilstien shocks. But maybe summit racing will let me build a kit

If you want to run bilsteins they make them for stock trucks. They are valved for the truck. They are just not the 5100 series. If you want to lift your truck go ahead. If you want to lift it just to run 5100 I think your money could go into a better shock for stock ride height.

I have been wanting to install a 4" lift for awhile. My springs have 200k on them and when I stop or take off I feel a thud. When I watch my springs on take off they allow the axle to roll so much that my over loads hit the stops, and thats with a soft take off. So I would guess week or broke springs? So may be its time for the lift. I keep hearing how good the bilstien shocks are? My friend has the same truck with lift and rancho 9000 adjustable shocks and he loves them what do u recommend?

What's the budget? Do you tow? What do you use the truck for? Lift kits range from $800-$5000
