    I am pretty sure that 4wp manufactures these lifts themselves. I have no idea about quality. Normally it is what you spend is what you get.

    I heard that these are kind of mismatched springs from different manufacturers, but I may be wrong. They might also make them themselves, I'm not sure, but remember, you get what you pay for.

    I think they are actually ProComp springs (may be wrong.) I bought my 6" lift from 4wpw and I think my springs are actually procomp.
    Let me warn you up front the springs are not exactly smooth riding. Of course no 6" lifted truck is going to ride like a Caddy, but they are on the rough side. Other makers have lower spring rate leafs that will ride nicer.
