1) He spoke honestly to you, as you like.

2) He spoke honestly to you, as you like it.

3) He spoke honestly to you as you like.

4) He spoke honestly to you as you like it.

Which of the above sentences are grammatical and make sense?
Which need 'just' before 'as you like...'?

In which case:
a) You like to be spoken to honestly and that's what he did
in which:
b) He spoke to you honestly in the way you like to be spoken honestly to (this is a weird thing to say, but not meaningless)

Gratefully,
Navi
