    4 link is the way go to, especially if you plan on making any power with the truck. You can get away with removing leafs and flipping the axle, but the leafs wrap if there's any load on them. Same thing will happen with blocks. You could always add the 4 link down the road if you just wanted to get started on it. I had helper bags with leafs on my Suburban, but I'm cheap and wasn't putting a lot of money in to it.

    As far as the fronts go, sounds like you have that under control. Just make some cups, put some bags in and move the shock.

    I would go with the 4 link. If you are on a tight budget wait and save the $$ you need to do it proper. I getting tired of seeing hacked up rear air suspension on trucks. Sure its kinda functional but looks like ass.

    camarooon,

    I know you posted this a while ago but here's some pics/info on my truck. If you haven't called Dario yet the do it! He does great work and is a cool guy too.

    Don't even bother with bags on leaves. It's just plain dangerous and will perform like crap. Do it right the first time.

    Let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything.

    Later - Evan
