Awesome! Thanks guys. I know about the ball joints, a complete Dana 44 rebuild is on the books anyways, so those were just going to get replaced as well.

I do have one question, feel free to call me an idiot and curse my name for it ... but I was thinking of doing a coil-over conversion (long term) for comfort and driveability. Here's the two part question, 1.) Worth it? 2.) How much towing and cargo capacity will I lose?

I haven't done too much research yet, so that's why I'm asking. Trying to get rid of the harsh ride, because the idiots who owned the truck before me threw 4.5" lift blocks underneath the rear end, and I HATE lift blocks.
