Default Leaf Spring to 4-Link in 05 Ram

Has anybody done a custom swap like this? Looking for good options to keep tires planted, lower the truck and not have to do major surgery to frame and bed.

Nobody!? 37 views and no responses... Anyone considered or even looked in to this idea? Any good recommendations on taming these 66" leaf springs?

I built a 5 link and mounted qa1 coilovers in mine, but I've been autocrossing mine and doing stupid stuff that shouldn't be done in a 4800lb tank. how much power are you running? Caltracks and the polyurethane leaf bushings help alot!

Did your set-up require frame surgery? I have gotten more than a few suggestions for CalTracks, but they don't solve the ride height issue.
