should i buy this powerstroke?

hi im new to this. i am looking at buying a 2000 f350 7.3 powerstroke with 170000 miles. it has a 4" lift and he is running 37" tires. it has 3.73 gears. it rides really hard i read that the ride can be softened by spraying a lubricant in the leaf spring shackles and replace the shocks with the blisten shocks.it has 20" rims i'm wondering if i bought it and put 35" tires and replace the shocks and lubricated the springs would that make a difference in the ride. it also has a chip and a aftermarket air intake. if i replace them with 35's and drive eayt what kind of mpg is realistic. thanks

I would guess 16 mpg average between highway and city. If you want a better ride I would go with a tire and wheel combo that has more sidewall. I would recommend a 18" rim plus the tires are cheaper.
