    yes, but when it comes to ride quality, you are, production vs production, going to get better ride with coils. Its not a matter of if it can be done, it is weather it is done. There is a reason no modern pickups have leafs up front. Coils can produce a better ride quality more easily and give better turning which will ALWAYS be a detriment of leafs. And idk about you, but ill take as tight of turning as I can get.

      Exactly. That's why everything is switching over to them.

      Yes they do. I was shocked when I had to do an oil change on one.
