Hi Adam thanks for the info. I had found the site for these guys at rusty hope. And have priced out what they are offering and found that they dont seem to like dealing w Canadians. they charge extra money for same services for americans. as well as the fact that the brake parts they use on the brakes I found to be inferior parts.
I personally have decided to drop the front I beam for an IFS kit, after totalling the cost for all the parts for the I beam,ie bearings,suspension, steering,and brake parts ect.
and the cost of the IFS I belive this is the better way to go.
the over all drivability will be ten times better.
I am currently looking for a front passenger side fender for mine if you have any leads. pass them my way
good luck w your truck

thanks Tim
