what do you mean you have 2 trucks? do you have complete donor truck? of not it might just be cheaper to just buy a 4 link coil conversion for it

yup.. your going to need everything including the front axle to make the conversion... seeing how you need that most people charge about 1k just for the axle...

I had seen a whole front axle set up out of an 05 in the Dallas Craigslist for $500 buck with everything. It was out of a wrecked truck and they had cut the frame right behind the trailing arm brackets. I found the link.
