Default 2006 Ram leaf to coil conversion

So i have a 2006 ram 2w short box. i plan on doing a 4 link coil suspension conversion from the leaf springs. Im no master fabricator or welder by any means. I looked for a kit online and never found anything really. then i had the idea to use parts from the newer generation rams but the frames look different than one another. I cant be the first person to come up with this idea and if your willing to share some knowledge that would be awesome

I copied this from another website, they had a 2003

I converted my 3rd gen Ram to a four link and man, what a difference in all around driveability. The leafs are never going back in! Hell, Durango's have a four link, why shouldn't us truck guys.

from the post i only read this in the Mod list
FBSS Air Ride Technologies suspension
