Well It won't work. Why you have a F-350 and the lift is designed for a F-150 while it might look all the same I am sure there are differences.

they said that the body lift kit i bought WOULDNT work on a diesel... and i proved that wrong.. no problems or anything with it.

If I came out seeming harsh I didn't mean too. As for the body lift I can see how they would be wrong on that. As the body of the truck of a F-150 and F-350 for that year was the same. There are companies out there I believe Fab-tech is one of them that make a 4 inch suspension lift for your truck. Don't quote me on that but I know I seen it some where. But the cost is not cheap still costs more then a 4 inch lift for a 4 wheel drive truck.

digging a bit more i found a kit for a f250... heres the link..

if you read it it uses the f150 coils and new leafs for the back to provide the lift...

this should work then right guys???

f250 and f350 of my year are the same suspension setup correct?
the f250 springs in the back will also be able to carry a load right??
or maybe i could take out my ADD A LEAF and put it into the new pack for the lift springs?

Sorry but I don't think it will. Here is why, you have a diesel, there for you need springs that can hold the wieght of that engine up. The lift you are looking at is most likely for a gas engine F-250. The wieght of your engine may make the front end sag there for not providing you with the lift you need. You may want to contact a spring company and see if they can make you a set of springs for the fron tof your truck. Or you may want to check out a set of coil springs for a 6 inch lift to compensate for the sagging of the front end of the truck from the extra wieght your engine provides.

yes you are correct. the kit that i listed ( second ) was for a 5.8 litre gas motor.. so a 351 cu. in. that motor cant weigh much less then my 7.3 can it??

yes i will contact skyjacker but becuase companies take so long to reply i thought i might get a better/quicker answer here.
thanks for the help

Yes it does as the 351 5.8 L is a small block V-8. The 7.3L is a Big Block V-8. Big difference in wieght. Now if you can find one for the 460 cu inch. Big Block V-8 then that might work out for you. Yes they did offer the 460 big block in your year truck it was an optional engine.

i think its an extra 120 more cubic inches.. i understand it will weigh more but im trying to figure out how much roughly and if those springs will sag MUCH more then the 5.8 would make them.
im going to call skyjacker tonight to see if maybe they make a longer spring i could use to make up for my motor.

i sure hope i can find a kit..

I think the 351 will weigh about half as much as the 7.3.
