My personal opinion is the leaf spring trucks ride better, a lot better. My 06 is mushy in the front, like every other coil sprung Super Duty I've ridden in. My 99 and 03 both felt much better.
As for turning, the coil trucks are suposed to have a tighter turning radius but I can't tell a difference trying to park anywhere. I will say there was a couple year gap between me having the 03 and 06, both CCSB's, and I've never driven/turned coils & leafs back to back for comparison. I will say that in general mall/shopping center parking, I can not put the 06 anywhere that I didn't used to put the 03.
I can also tell you my 06 CCSB requires more effort to steer than anything else I've ever driven. I'll have to look under it and see if it has dual steering stabilizers for some reason, I beleive it's a single unit. That would affect the effort significantly. My wife cant turn the wheel single handed at anything other than highway speeds.
