I'm doing the front coil conversion on my 2000 F250. I have two questions, Does the front drive shaft typically need to shortened or do I have the axle placed to far rearward? Also I have read that the steering box needs to be changed out for a 2007 unit. Is this true and if so is it a simple bolt in or do I need to do more fab work?

You will need the driveshaft from a coil spring truck, it is a different length than the leaf spring trucks. It's not technically necessary to change the steering gear but it is the easy way (yes it is bolt in). If you don't, you will have to modify the existing Pitman arm to work with the new drag link.
