The 4" lift is good on these trucks as the raised steering arm is at stock levels so it drives really good. One thing you should also install is Off Road Designs sway bar relocation kit it made a huge difference in ride on mine as well as their steering box bolt in brace. I have the rancho springs which are typically stiffer as well.
