I eventually want to do a 2/4 drop also. From what I've read from the people on here you can go with a drop with either springs front and rear, or go front spindle/ rear springs. You might want to look into a track relocation bar also in order to keep the rear centred.
The all spring route is cheaper, but you would have a factory ride up front with spindles.
I'm sure someone that has dropped theirs will answer in on this as well.

You might want to check the complete builds of Unbroken and Indeepwaterblue. They can probably give you a ton of info also

The Mcgaughys kit is pretty awesome i have their parts on both of my trucks even my 4wd and they are top notch they are the only ones that offer a progressive spring for the rear so you dont loose payload capacity here are pics of what they look like installed


2011 Sport 2WD 2/4 McGaughys "spring kit" not spindle with 1/2 coil cut out of the front with stock 20s with 275/55/20 Nitto 420s


2012 4WD bighorn with just the progessive 2.5 inch rear drop, stock in the front 22s with 305/45/22


Hope this helps
