There are some kits out there, check eBay you'll see the one that's always on there. There is a few kits at SEMA every year but never really catch on with the mainstream. Believe me I've considered it multiple times, but in the end I conclude its not the best route for my needs because I tow heavy, and you just can't beat the reliabilty of leafs, and you can't get coils with as much progression as you can leafs. If you want a show type truck I would go for it. For pure performance leafs can do just as good. I've had a custom set built that and reworked over and over to get then right. Now works perfect, tows, has 18" of travel. Good luck.

This truck is strictly my toy. the heaviest thing it sees is a 8 ft trailer with my motorcycle or 4 wheeler. my main thing is i want a softer ride and more suspension travel. i've talked my self out of the air bags but still considering coil over or may just put some light atlas springs and some bilsteins.

Deaver Springs

Lots of pre-runners still run leafs in the rear (64" deaver springs) The pro units run 4-link but still. Leafs rock.
