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.

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.

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...

Its a lot better plus 05+ has bigger brakes and 35 spline inner and outer axle shafts
