Looking to get a 4" lift......

Well about 3 years ago I put a rough country leveling kit on my truck and in about a year it sagged and now all the shocks and everything is going to the pits. After alittle research on here ive come to the conclusion to maybe get a ICON 4" spring system to replace the front spring and give my 315/75/16 Duratacs alittle more room. I just bought two new rear leafs from the stealer because my passanger had 3 leafs fall out so figured might as well add some height while im tearing it apart. Also what shocks would be good to install for a quality ride?

I was just looking and im wondering now if I should go with a hanger kit and just spend the extra money and buy two factory front leaf springs and then get the 4.5 icon hanger kit with the rear blocks or would the icon kit with front springs be a good way to go?

I think a hanger set up with x-code springs in the front is the best riding.. don't quote me on that though.

Anyway you go about it ICON is a great company I stand by their product. I would also go with some ICON shocks they are valved for SD.

Duratracks ..Best riding kit will be a Icon 3" hanger kit if you have V code fronts, may get some very slight rubing off road. Bilstein shocks..your set. We carry whats needed including the springs..if we can help please PM me.
