Lift kit questions

I have a 2000 excursion 4x4 with a 7.3. I have a chance to get a 4.5 inch rough country spring lift off a 2000 F-350 crew cab long bed also a 7.3. I was wondering if this lift would be a direct fit for my truck. The rough country web sight shows different part numbers for the ex and the super dutys but i dont see any differance in the pics. If any one knows that this will work or wont or what adittional parts i will have to buy i would really appreciate the info. thanks

from what I understand... the rough country 5" springs are the same springs used for the F-250 6" kit. I would call rough country to check what lift you'll actually achieve with the 4.5" springs... it might not give you any more than 3.5" of lift???

Like he said, not sure what the actual lift might be, but as far as fitment, yes everything should line up.

Thanks for the reply. The truck its on now clears 35 inch tires with no rubbing at all. I dont no how much actual lift it is. All i want to do is run 35s anyway.

I fianally got around to installing this lift on my truck. Everything fit just like in should exept for the rear shocks. The rear shocks have a different upper mount on the excursion. This kit was suppose to be a 4 1/2 inch lift for a f-350 but on my excursion I ended up with 6 inch of lift. I didnt notice how low this thing was before it sure looks better now i think.
