Default ICON shocks kit

Is there anybody on here that has experience with the ICON shocks kit for the 2009-2011 1500 trucks?

http://www.iconvehicledynamics.com/s...-%252d-Stage-2

I was considereing a 4" lift but dont really need all that height but in order to be able to put on some 34" or perhaps even 35" wheels I would need a couple of inches. I dont think I want a leveling kit as after reading many posts on many forums, there seems to be some issues with wobbles and CV angles... So the ICON stage 2 or 3 solution seems a pretty solid solution.

Any suggestions or experiences regarding this kit? Any suggestions? At this stage I am not concerned about the cost and would prefer to spend a little extra for a top quality upgrade that is not going to negatively impact the rest of the truck ...

I understand what your thinking the issues might be with a leveling kit.... but, unfortunately your doing the same thing with the icon system... essentially your putting a leveling kit on your truck. The differential isn't lowered, so you still may have the same problems that some of the other people have had. Sorry...

Look for a kit that replaces your cross members and steering knuckles

i know in the jeep world you have to change components to allow for the new angles of the drive shaft shaft and front suspension.
