03 To Coil Front Swap?

Does someone sell a kit, to convert the front springs to the coil setup like the 05 and up superdutys. And if they do can I get a link? I browsed google but couldnt come up with anything.

Pref something that would match up with my revtek 4" lift would be sweet as well.

Also do people think its worth it? Man the turning radius on this thing is awful (cclb)

Thanks!

I think there are currently 2 coil over conversions available. One is from fabtech - I do not know if it decreases your turning radius.

The person to ask for this would probably be Raul...

Fabtech makes a kit. They did a conversion in one in a issue of one of the diesel mags.

No doubt on the turning radius, I've just gotten used to the fact that I need a parking lot if I wanna make a U-Turn, kinda is what it is I guess.
