10" fabtech lift on '11 drw... will it work?

I'm looking at putting a 10" fabtech radius arm lift on my 2011 F350 DRW. The website says for "non dually models only". Anyone know why this is? I realize that the drw has different rear axle but is there anything else? I've seen a few 2011's on the american force wheels website running the 8" version of this lift. If anyone has any info on why the lift apparently wont work on duallys it would be greatly appreciated.

The rear axle circumference is the issue I believe. But deaver springs will work I'm told.
I can't decide to go with 6" lift with 35-36" tires or 8" with 37"

The only difference should be the diameter of the rear axle tubes.....meaning you just need to get larger ubolts than what comes in a kit.

You might have to extend the rear sway bar links also.

Piece of cake.

I have a 6 inch bds installed right now with 37s and it looks good, I just want something a little more aggressive looking.

The way the ubolt configuration on the '11s is the axle tube size shouldnt matter for ubolt size. The axle isnt craddled in the u bolts any more like the 08-10 models and previous years. The ubolts are upside down now and theres a heavy cast piece that craddles the axle. I talked to tech support at fabtech about it and they said every thing will bolt up just with the new springs my load capacity will be deminished and thats why they dont recommend it for duallies. Isnt that true of any lift though? Think I'm going to just purchase the lift and take my chances. anywho i'll keep you guys posted...
