DO IT!!!!!!

I havnt done it yet but the parts are being gathered, along with f150 leafs and a shackle flip...

I cant wait to have smooshy suspension... I spend a good 40% of my time on gravel and it'll be nice to not have a near death experience every time I hit wash board.

Get some coilovers on there. You won't regret it one bit.
I believe someone on the other forum is building brackets for the A-arms if you don't want to fab them yourself. Don't forget to reinforce the upper shock mount.

The kit you are speaking of comes with weld in braces for the shock towers

The kit isn't cheap but worth every penny.
