ive done a bunch of research on the other items needed for a lift this size.
my big question is regarding Hydro or Nitro shocks? does anyone have any preference for comfortable driving on the road?
and also for this size lift does anyone recommend getting a new steering shaft??
When you say steering shaft do you mean between the steering wheel and the box? Suspension lift doesn't really change that. Body lifts can though. Or if you mean the steering parts between the box and the wheels (e.g. draglink, tie rod, etc.) upgrading them is a good idea. What size tires do you intend to run?
Have never run either, but Hydros get almost universally better reviews than Nitros IIRC.
You haven't said anything about driveline adjustments (e.g. SYE, driveshaft, arms, etc.). Those are the kind of important changes you need to worry about at 4".
