As far as I know, the track width of the leaf sprung and the coil sprung axles are different. They were kept the same front and rear. This is one of the reasons how the tighter turn radius could be accomplished. Is this visible on your truck?
Also, as far as I know, the master break cylinder got changed in 2005 to account for the bigger breaks and calipers. Did you keep the original master?
