heard its pretty good..especially if u get the king shocks. I think Fabtech's kit is probably better although the 4.0 coilover shocks are very stiff (bouncy) in my opinion. My g/f has a 8inch fabtech with the 4.0's and it rides stiffer than my 03 with all springs, although her's is very stable. If you get the 2.5inch kings on the fulltraction kit, i think they prob ride way softer. Skyjacker also makes a coilover conversion but not sure how great that one is. Any questions please ask

thanks for the post. I have heard a few people say they liked the fabtech and a few said they didn't. I have heard good things and in the right up you posted it looks like the full traction is top notch.

Full Traction is definitely top shelf. I rode in a friend's 02 on 8" of lift (Full Traction conversion) and I think his truck rode better than my 05. BTW, my 05 has a Rize 4 link and King shocks.

Your knuckles limit the turn radius not the suspension usually. Its cheaper IMO to swap '05 up axles and a Pure Performance 4 link suspension lift. If you sell and buy right the axles will be a wash..

If I can help I know were lots of '05 up axles are. PM me.

I think some of that depends on your tire and wheel choice. I've seen lots of tire rub on leaf springs....

Apples and apples..putting coils on a '99-04 axle won't change the knuckles and their limited turning ability.

I don't disagree. Never asked my buddy to bang a U-turn to see if the turning radius had changed, but what you're saying makes sense.
