Advice on leveling kit or....

Hey guys just wanted some advice from yall out there. I am planning to do a leveling kit, this one http://www.4wheelparts.com/Lift-Kits-Suspensions-Shocks/ComfortRide-Suspension-Strut-Spacer-Kit.aspx?t_c=1&t_s=358&t_pt=9333&t_pl=7140&t_pn=DA YKT09116BK,
and was wondering what yall thought of it. It goes on top of the strut instead of compressing it. All im looking to do is lift the front 3". But here's the kicker, I also want a great front suspension. So, does anyone out there make a strut that lifts this sucker 3" or....... no?

Spacers are a terrible idea for "great front suspension"


Look into bilistine 5100s, OME 885s, or some aftermarket coilover brand King Icon Fox Sway away. All of these can get you about 3 inch lift with a good ride quality.

Bilstein 5100's are a shock that lift the front. I think Rancho quicklift also just started making a similar shock for our trucks.
