That give you 4/5. Get a belltech shackle to raise up the rear one inch for a net of 4/4. That is what i have, and i love it!

Opps, its the belltech 6400 chevy lowering shackle...but it actually lifts our trucks because our shackles are pointed in the opposite direction.

lol. Yup those are the lift shackles. It'll lift you about 1inch or 2inches depending on which hole you bolt the leafs to...

Here is a picture of them installed on my truck. It gave me about 1inch lift

The majority of my customers with a 98+ end up going with the DJM 4/5 drop and Doetsch Nitro Slammer shocks. If you have any questions at all please feel free to email brian@illusivefabrications.com for the fastest replys. I carry DJM and Belltech suspension components.

Thanks for posting up the link dangerranger01

Good point! And you really don't need a notch unless you go lower than 5" in the rear or have crappy shocks. IF you have a 98+ ext cab and notch the frame you may need to start notching into the cab as well.
