EvilBeef, Those year trucks had a factory coil over setup that could be described as a ladder bar. The weak link is the driveshaft. They have a 2-piece driveshaft with a carrier bearing in the middle.
Unless it is truly a custom aftermarket ladder setup, I would not consider it. It would be far simpler to cut off all brackets and weld on some spring perches. Have it done in an afternoon.
