Excursion lift on a super duty?

Have a chance to get a used lift with everything I need off of the same year excursion as my truck. 4x4. Leaf springs. Blocks in the back. Will this work on a truck also?

Might not get the samelift as the excursion. My 6" lift is a 4"lift on a pickup. Not sure why.

If I remember correctly, my buddy had an excursion and told me this, the excursion sits 2" lower than the truck from the factory, therefore a 6" lift on an excursion is the equivalent of a 4" lift on a pickup since it started 2" taller than the ex. Not that the same kit 6" on an ex would only net 4" on the truck. I may be wrong.

The guy with the excursion said he has a five inch lift on it? Didn't think they made that. Anyway if the lift is lower on the truck I won't need a carrier bearing drop right?

it would be in your best interest to get a carrier bearing spacer.....IIRC for every 1" of lift the carrier bearing needs a 1/4" shim....

U need to check with a shop. It should still lift your truck five inches. From my understanding if u put the same 4" kit for example on the two vehicles, the x would be 2" lower therefore it requires a 6" lift to sit as high as a pickup with a 4". I don't think it means that a 6" lift on an x will net only 4" on a truck.
