going down to a 4" lift

i have an 8 inch superlift on my truck that was on it when i bought it. it rides like crap so now i am wanting a 4 inch that rides good. but the only thing is i have no stock stuff and in hawaii we dont have many junkyards, and the ones we do have are full of hondas and nissans. a local offroad shop quoted me 1650 for a skyjacker that has all the stuff for the drop. just looking for opinions on what will ride good, include everything i need to go down to 4", and within my price range which is about 1700 including shipping. which i also know is hard since i live in hawaii. so like i said any advice is greatly appreciated and if any vendors can hook me up let me know. thanks

No info about your truck makes it impossible to make any meaningful suggestions.

sorry its an 04 f250 harley davidson. its an all spring kit that is on it so i need an all spring kit. the only thing about online is the is cost of shipping, it is reidiculous out here. so 1650 really isntt bad but i am not sure about the ride and quality of the skyjacker.

Is there a spring shop in Hawaii that can make you a set of springs? That would save the shipping and you could specify your spring rates. Use that and order a set of shocks specifically valved to match and you're in business.

no not that i know of, and if there was one they probably would want more than the cost of a lift.
