Coil-Over Conversion for the 99-03, worth it?

I am thinking about getting one of these. I wonder how much it would improve the ride. Anyone on here know of anyone doing this?

Here are a few links to the ones that I am looking at...

Skyjacker Platinum Series Z-Link Kits for 00-04 Ford F-250 Pickup 4WD All Engines

fabtech.... 4wd 99-04 Super Duty

Full-Traction Suspension Ford F-250 Super Duty 1999-2004 FORD SUPER DUTY -4.0",6.0" & 8.0" 4-LINK SUSPENSION CONVERSION SYSTEM

That would really depend on what you want/ expect from the kit.

If you are looking for more travel, and longevity at longer travel... then, yes.. coil over is the way to go... the Fabtech one with the Dirt Logic C/Os is the winner...

The shocks are the make or break..

What are you looking for?

My truck already has a 4" lift and I like the amount of lift it has with big tires its about all the lift I want, but I want the ride, and travel or many other good points of the coil overs. The Skyjacker seems like a good price for the lift. I just would not want it in red. I wonder if the skyjacker is US made, I hate the cheap china steel.
