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

Still too steep for me lol. I guess I was just thinkin somthing different in my head. So the best thing to do would be to find a donor truck i guess?

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.
