i would personally go with the 4 inch, they will be slightly less arched which will give you a little bit more up travel, then add a belltech 6400 drop shackle and that will give you almost 6 inches of lift... i think the 4 inchers will ride better than the sixers and arnt as stiff...

yeah... i already have the beltechs and pro-comp add-a-leafs with stock block... i want a lil more height in the rear since my t-bars are barely cranked. i may go with the 4 inchers since they are cheaper. i would like a little feed back on who has these leafs, to let me kno how they ride and handle paylload

I'm running the 6"s. They work great for me, just need a some different shocks to get all the travel out of them.

I have an extra 6" spring, never been installed. I robbed a bushing out of it but I'm sure you could get a new bushing cheap. PM me and I'll cut you a deal.
