If all you want is a 4"+- get a Icon hanger kit,,much better ride quality than a spring lift.

Well if you go by your screen name. You would build your lift not buy one


Honestly if you go with any name brand lift that is out there. You will not be disappointed.

Nothing is wrong with using properly enginered hanger kits like Icon's off road.
