I have an 04 also. Most people will recommend the kp 6 link for a nice dependable system for a the rear end. And standard cup and bags up front. At east get 5 gallons of air and some valve. 1/2" or 3/8" depending on how fast you want it. Personally i would run 1/2 fills and 3/8 dumps. I have 1/2 and they are a little to fast dumps.

all depends on how much you wanna spend?.......if you have the money i would suggest having a shop build you a nice custom 4 link adn what not but if youw ant something relatively cheap and reliable i would go with a kit like KP....

i have 1/2" dumps and fills. to slow it down i used a swagelok 1/2" to 3/8" fitting on the dump, and it slowed it down drastically.

My truck is a daily also and I just put in 1/2" fills and dumps. Its a bit fast for me on the dump side, and will probably be adding reducers to slow it down. But I wanted to have 1/2 just in case I wouldn't have been happy with the 3/8's.
Are you going to be towing anything bigger than say a jet ski? If you are, then I wouldn't go with the 6-link. Use the 4-link for sure. Nice ride and easy to maintain.

Up front go with some cups, bags, and spend a couple hundred to get some spindles too. They will keep your angles in check and you can ride lower. Good luck, you've found the right place to have your questions answered.

Parker valves

You can put on some drop spindles to correst the camber if your running 20's. If your running 22's I think its spindles and drop arms.

BUt I suggest contitect bags. I',m running 2600 4 ply dual 1/2 ports and I love them.

I have slams up front, and firestones in the rear. The only downfall of slam bags is that they ride a lot rougher than firestone or conitech, but they wont separate, and you get more lift... And you may want a little negative camber depending on what wheels you have... makes for a little more ease of tucking some wide bitches in the front. I'd suggest some spidles is all...

Spindles yes.....spindles w/ drop arms are a big :nono: IMO...

there is no real way to completely eliminate negative camber....it is just something that happens with the movement of you control arms. Just get a set of spindles and you'll be fine..
