I'm bumping up to 4" of lift. I think I'm going to do just like I did when I went to 2.5" and move the rear links to the front and get new links for the rear.

The factory fronts were 5", the factory rears were 8.75".
The rears that came with the Teraflex 2.5" were 12", which should make them slight too long for 4" lift in the front.

What have you other guys done?

My understanding is that the links should be of a length to keep the anti-sway bars plus or minus 10 degrees from level when sitting on level ground.

yeah, it looks like the ones I've got on now with my 2.5" lift are a little longer than they need to be. We'll see what they look like at 4"

I heard that fully flexed you should still have a good angle to them in relation to the sway bar so they do not invert.
