Are you planning on lifting the truck? What steering box are you going to run? If you run the '99-04 steering box you will need to build a custom steering link. If you run the '05-newer steering gear box you won't, but will have to drill the holes in the frame since the mounting bolts are bigger. Everything is 85% bolt up, but you will need to drill a few holes that aren't there, but there are enough existing holes you will not have any trouble with aligning brackets etc. You will need new brake lines. I just went to a local shop and had them make a set of stainless lines for me.
Asthetically I like the coil suspension with the links, but personally I would stay with the '99-04 leaf spring set-up and just do a few upgrades. The coils don't ride much better than the leaf springs.
