Re: want to put 05+ axles in my truck.

The 05 axles are wider, also they are set up for coil springs instead of leaf springs. I'm sure somebody has done it and will provide more info.

Re: want to put 05+ axles in my truck.

Its a easy swap, if I can do it to a OBS a SD is a piece of cake. If you still want the lift then don't get the stock radius arms from the donner..just get a kit with the 4 link arms.

We only carry the BEST parts and never compromise just to get a sale.

How much better is the turning radius on the newer trucks vs the older? That just seems like an awful lot of work just to get a little better turning radius...

The ride quality alone is worth the swap.
