keep in mind that your freinds 05 with teh solid axle has coil over springs, not leafs which ride mich better. Ill admit that my ride got considerably worse when i put the solid axle in the truck i did the swap on. However, I had a 4 inch lift kit made and it was a cheaper kit so it had a terrible ride to begin with. If you use the stock springs, the ride shoudnt be too bad, you can always add in springs from the super duty and it will ride smoother.
I paid 600 for my axle at a junk yard. I replaced all ball joints, seals and the spindle bearing while i had the thing out, ran a little over a grand in the end, worth every penny in my opinion. Tires wearing normally now, truck is steering correctly, and no more death wobble, if you can find one within your price range do it.
