yes it will

no changes to suspension in the year change.

I never had any issues with mine.

worse part about them is the noisy sway bar links.

there is this ball joint built into them for more flex, it wears and then creates play. cost is 100 bucks to replace.

idk they are still not that bad.

There haven't been any changes to the suspension, so it'll work just fine. The superlift knuckles are even designed to accept the 01-03 and the 03+ brake rotors (unlike the RCD). The sway bar links suck because of why Zach elaborated, and because at the top end there are two washers and a small spacer that are supposed to go around the sway bar, but the spacer is too big so the washers rattle around a lot and it gets really annoying really fast.

the brake rotors was not even a big deal. i have an 03 and it came with 12" rotors bought the smaller 11" rotors and was set and brakeing feels even better and the ride is nice with the rcd

rcd is my choice a little pricey but worth it. and brake rotors are not that expensive
