If you're happy to pay, Old Man Emu say they put plenty of research into their gear and heaps of people have it. I've got no weight up in the front of my ute and i've just bought a set of OME coil overs for the front to sort out the rake (level the front out). I've gone against buying the rear leaves and shocks as they'll raise the back too and are another $2k. However OME have designed the lift kit as a set, so if you only lift the front, you're not going to get the full performance out of the kit while 4WDriving.
Hope someone else can weigh in too, Cam.
