05 to 07 lift on an 02 truck

I have the opportunity to trade my stock 02 suspension for a 8inch lift. All I have to do is pay for a shop to swap It or do it myself. My question is will it all be interchangeable between our trucks or will the year difference matter.

I am assuming 4wd superduty?

It will not work. The 02 has leaf springs in the front, the 05-07 have coils.

Yes they are both 4x4 crew cabs. I figured so but I didn't know if anything could be done to swap them like mounts or anything

Well sure you can swap the mounts and entire suspension, but that is more work than it is worth for just a few inches of lift.

if you have all the parts its a petty easy conversion. The ride is quite a bit better and your turning radius is way tighter
