Radius arms the same as 4 link?

Stupid question here... is the kit from revtek 4.5" with radius arms the same as 4 link? Also any opinions on revtek lifts? Seems like it would be a better deal/smoother ride than the kit from icon with drop brackets and cost about $400 less.

Radius arms are what come stock on the 05 up front suspension. The Revtek kit is just giving you aftermarket replacements that tie in to the factory mounts without drop brackets and correct for the geometry changes.

The kit gives you no where near the adjustability or ride improvements of a 4 link setup.

a 4 link has 4 tubular bars that look like traction bars that have hiem joints on both ends that adjust, you would have to weld on two new brackets for the other two

Just looked at Carli's site... seems like all parts are identical except the shocks.. Guess i could get the starter kit with bilsteins for 1800 and swap shocks later if i wanted?
