How was the 05 coil suspension? Was it a tough install? Stupid question but could you just bolt that thing in? Kinda want to do a coil conversion but don't want to spend 5k doing it.

Got my problem figured out, man you guys are great help... lol

The swap isnt bad. im in it for about 650$ for everything. for the most part everything bolts up the rest you have to chase some holes and drill a few.

The radius arm '05 up suspension will ride better than a correctly done leaf spring front if 4 link arms are added.

Yes you can do this swap to a dually.

CT, so how much am i looking at to swap my leaf to coil, with 4 arm, and possibly lowering it a couple of inches? I;m currently running on 24s w/ 295/40 tires.
