Welcome to the forum

Precision Metal fab was the 1st to make a BOLT IN RSK for using SD springs and his prices are great.

SKY makes a kit, but you would be wise to ditch the stock springs in favor of the SD springs. It makes the ride unbelievable. I had 2 trucks with Just RSKs and stock springs. I also have 2 trucks w RSKs and SD springs. Night and day difference

I did the Sky kit with SD springs, clears 35's just fine. Didn't see any reason to weld anything, has more bolts than stock. Just got back from a 2500mi trip and it rides great except on CA roads, nothing can help with those roads.

Do you have the "new" $540 kit or the original $300 kit

It's the newer kit, picked it up from Cary at CT performance. The rear hangers replace the factory rivets with slightly larger bolts, the front reuses the one factory bolt hole and adds a bunch more smaller bolts.

Sky kit is a waste of time and money with the PMF kit. I just did my truck with the PMF kit an it is a great fitting, nicely engineered piece for these trucks to run SD springs.

How is the Sky kit a waste of time and money? I have no idea how much the PMF kit costs but the Sky kit was a easy bolt on. The only thing that was a pain is removing the factory rivets on the rear hangers.

The PMF kit is almost 200 less than the sky and you do Not need to Cut off the old rear hangers
