Have you thought about converting to a 4 link suspension and coil overs? The cost of a kit is what will get you though.

No... most or less I'm looking for it to behave like a modern 3/4 ton pickup in ride quality, power, handling, braking/steering.

Power, handling, steering, braking I have already completed to modern day. Ride is only thing thats left.

I think pulling leafs out... and then adding a air-lift airbag assist for extra load capacity seems to be the ticket.

To be honest the truck may actually see a sway bar if the ride ever gets soft enough.
