Wouldn't you also need to reinforce the frame for the additional weight?, Shocks, leafs, etc......

I am thinking no initially. This is bc when you look at suspension parts it groups 5.4's and 7.3/V10's together.
If I had to mess around with suspension too I would put 6.0 suspension on! COILS!!!!!

I think there isn't much difference for the frames, between engines. I would bet that they build the frames all the same, then they go to different areas for whatever engine they are getting......
