I would think that everything BUT the coils would work. The rear leafs didn't change until 2008. If you are using a Pro Comp lift with 23311 rear leafs, Pro Comp says you need the the OEM block for the full effect. Essentially, on our trucks, it's a 4" rear lift spring and a 6.5" front lift spring. At least that's what Pro Comp told me when I called them.

However, if you're asking if those rear leafs will fit in the front, then the answer is no. I don't think the length is the same and I seriously doubt the spring rate is right.
