PVH Knuckles and Live axle truck?

Looking at the superlift for my truck and I was wondering if the PVH knuckles that are in the kit will work on my 2003 with live hubs?

Only difference should be that I don't have to hook an air line through the knuckle right?

Would I need to change the brakes to the smaller 02 and under models?

you will need to change the brakes as the spindles dont have the adjustment for bigger brakes.

yes the kit will still work, just plug the lines.

i just installed a superlfit kit with PVH on a live axle truck, i know it works. but that was an 01 with smaller rotors.

Rotors and pads I can get cheap through work.

I think for 500 bux plus shipping for the kit that I can make it work :)

its ok, the only reason i know is becasue Jared (rangerboy03lvl2) downgraded his brakes so that the RCD kit would work, and i asked him all those questions.

I told the guy that I would take it, now I just need to get a shipping quote :)

I guess now I can put it together with some extra goodies that don't normally go on, like bilstein resevoir shocks :)
