if you have the fabtech uca its not gonna work with LT cuz LT will change uppers lowers and use a uniball on both. coil bucket will need to get cut off and a new one for the 8" travel coilover shocks.
are you trying to get rid of the weak lbj bracket?

NO

Going full LT would probably require you to throw at least what your truck is worth back into it again, likely more.

you could look around for a downey setup. im running a downey lower and upper control arm with a downey coilover. all bolt on for my 96 5 lug. they are hard to come by, but work great. its not a "long travel" system. it gives you lift, a smooth ride, and some added travel but, it still uses a ball joint so it will always be limited.
