How come the lift size is different on Excursions compared to F250s?

I ordered a Pro comp K6018B suspension lift and it says for the front 6" on excursions and 4" on f250s.

What makes the difference?

Probably due to the fact pickups have a factory "rake" the excursion does not have.

yea but the lift kit contains the same springs for the front. but estamates the lift different for the excursion compared to the 250. do the excursion have a different factory height up front (2 inches lower??) or any different parts to cause this difference.

Here is the product i am refering to:
