Radius arms 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 for more money

It is still a radius arm like the factory one just with a different design for cosmetics and to eliminate the need for a drop bracket. A kit like an Icon or Carli will still ride better since the drop bracket moves the radius arm back to a factory like angle and their coils and shocks will ride better than the Revtek units.

No, true 4 link arms allow a much better ride quality than lowered arms or Revteks system and allow you to add additional castor that these trucks need..main reason they are prone to wobble.
