Converting leaf springs to ???

I'm in the process of buying a C10 with a leaf rear. I want to lower, and bag, the truck. I'm not a fan of removing a bunch of leaves to bag it, so I need to convert the rear suspension. I am asking for opinions, along with reasoning, for how you would do it. As I see it, I can either swap to stock truck arm style, or install a 4 link like this. I'm leaning toward stock. But I found this: which seems to be a good deal, but the durability is a little suspect.

Re: Converting leaf springs to ???

I would go with stock style truck arm. The originals are around and the aftermarket makes a cross member and a variety of arms to help one accomplish baggin one of these and the best part is they bolt in and go. Otherwise you'll be looking into fabing your own 4 link with quality DOM steel and joints, which can get to be pricey. But bagging one of these trucks where you're not constantly going in and replacing parts is not cheap either. Pay once cry once. Check out porterbuilt, all american billet, or no limit engineering to name a few of the companies that make the cross member and truck bars that get you to lay out.
