The '08-10 springs are a nice improvement and the '11+ springs are even nicer (both will work with the conversion hangers). The 99-07 Icon springs are very nice springs though and will accomplish close to the same thing if the customer is desiring to lift the truck. Dont know what your paying for the springs but many times you could do the conversion hangers and OEM springs for less.
Im not certain which Icon springs the customer had, but I did have a customer that removed his Icons, and went with the '11 springs and said they did ride softer than the Icons. He said the difference wasnt night and day but it was better. He is on this board and may chime in.
I dont think you will at all be disappointed with your choice though Shawn, just different ways to accomplish a similar result.
If running a lift spring, no block and a shackle flip, you will need to be very careful. You may end up with too much upward pinion angle. Depends on what size of springs and what size of shackle flip though. I would keep it to a 2.5" shackle flip or less if going this route.
