That's what i am wondering too. From what i am read on a leaf sprung truck it all depends on what shock you run. But i am sure that there are some difference. But I want to know what would be a good set up too. I am been looking at the one from national wheel and tire for $900 and getting some good shocks. But I haven't seen any one running.

It's more than just shocks that make a difference. Make sure you go with a company that has two different kits, one for the gassers and one for the heavier diesels.
A suspension with a "one size fits all" approach won't be good at either.

well if your looking for a nice ride for your daily driver, get rid of the leaf spring and get a coilover conversion kit, either by fabtech or skyjacker. myself i have the skyjacker z link kit. the ride quality is great. Just depends on how much you want to spend really though is the question

on my 97,99,01 i ran BDS 4" and 6" kits. I liked them but you have to upgrade to a better shock like bilstein shocks or some thing valved for the SD truck. on my last truck i had procomps mx6 res shocks and i could adj the shock to where i liked it. but in the end its still a leaf spring truck. BDS or Procomp would get my vote for a suspension on 99-04 trucks. and tires/wheel combo makes a difference to. 35's on 16's rode better then my 35's on 20's so thats something to think about to.
