Verses getting the leveling kit that has spacers you would never use when putting on a 4" lift. Bilsteins are a win win to me. Just trying to help ya out bro.
I agree with BigHorn, go Bilstein's. If I was starting from scratch I would definitely go Bilstein's.

Sweet deal guys. Definatly makes sense to get the bilsteins since I want to add a 4in later down the road.

How do the 3.55 gears hold up to a set of 35in tires on 20in rims?

I just did a 6 inch lift and put 35" tires on my rig which has a 3.55 gear ratio. Ive noticed a bit of a loss in the get up and go off the line but im not one for having a heavy foot anyway so that does not bother me much. You should be fine with the 3.55

I ahve 37' tires with 3.55 gears. It does great!! I am going bigger on my next set so I might do some type of gear upgrade before I get wider tires.

As linksus89 said you will be fine.

I just ordered them from shockwarehouse.com for $369.99 & free shipping, down side is they are backordered until (I'm told) the end of the month... topgun has them marked up way high because they have some right now... I called a couple different places & they were all backordered too... I figured another couple of weeks was worth the extra almost $300 savings.

In that kit that topgunz has that I posted a link to, will the coil spring that they include in the kit raise the rear of the truck? Also that kit I believe said for 09-10 is there any difference in the rear or suspension between the 09,10 and 11. Mines an 11 BTW

4 Wheel Parts has a special this month on the PLS600 kit from Performance Accessories. It's $468 for a 5" kit that clears 35s easily.
