Shoot if money wasn't an issue, well i probably would have a different truck. But with this one I would probably get the camburg 6.0 kit. But in trying to keep costs low, that won't happen anytime soon. I imagine your setup is sweet, but costly. Also, I noticed in your profile it says Fabtech 5.5, so I am guess you actually have an XLT, not an Edge (just looked again and the Edge conversion is a dead giveaway ), so you already had coils. Unfortunately I have Tbars and LT isnt easy with Tbars.

well i have the stock a arms made a shock hoop and stuck in a coil over and got rid of the whole coil out side the shock and just modified the stock a arms with uniballs and the cost was low i think a total of 900 for the coil overs and 150 for the hoops and maybe 200 for the unies installed total like 1250 and it nice so for the price of camburg there you go

I think the big part your missing here is that the EDGE 2wd has the torsion bar suspension. It's completely different from the xlt 2wd with coils springs. I cant replace my coils outside the shock with coilovers b/c i dont have coils

I dont know if it's that easy. I think something similar to the RCD kit would be required. And that kit runs about $2300.
