can you lift an f250 with f350 coils and block?

Just put a lift on my F350 so i have the suspension parts left over.

My buddy with a f250 is wondering if he puts my coils and block in his truck, will they fit? how much lift will that render him?

Thanks!

I could be wrong but I think the coils and springs are the same for the f250 and f350.The only difference is the 3.5" rear blocks for the f350 and 2" blocks for the f250.......

I have actually pondered this pretty heavily.. I know the SRW 1 tons have a taller block in the rear than the 250's or 350 duallys. I have raised the rear of many f250's by ordereing the thicker blocks from ford (really reasonable) and then putting a 2 or 3 inch level kit on the front.. HOWEVER, my srw 1 ton 2007 model sat taller in the front without a leveling kit. Making me think if i knew the spring code of a 350 srw truck with a diesel you could then raise both front and rear about 2 .5 inches.. Problem is my 07 was stolen so i don't have access to the door tag anymore to get the spring code. If anyone knows somebody with a 06 or 07 f350 SRW and we could get the vin/ spring code off the door tag then we could order springs..etc. to make this happen.. I have a dually now and i currently have the 350 srw rear blocks and then put a leveling kit on the front .. I would love to make it all spring

i did this about two years ago. i put my friends 350 coils in my 250, along with 2.5" leveling spacer in the front. for the rear i put in a add a leaf, it raised the rear 1.5". the truck sits level to the eye but is 3/4" low in the front. my 250 and his 350 are identical supercab longbed 6.0. IMO i would not put the add a leaf in if you are not towing or hauling anything, it makes the rear end very stiff. feel free to ask any questions, it has been trouble free for 2 years. by the way if you put the coils and the spacer in you need to put a drop bracket in for the track bar to recenter the front axle. i used procomps 2" drop bracket

yes it does lift the truck but 1" at most. The thing you notice the most is the ride, the coils firm up the ride some.

It would have to raise it more than 1 inch.. The factory tires on a 07 f350 srw 1 ton are nearly 35 inches tall. The overall trucks sit close to 4 inches taller than a comparable 250 srw.. The rear blocks are 2 inches (roughly ) taller. If the front coils were only worth a inch then the srw 350 trucks would sit severely low in the front compared to the rear and both of my srw 1ton 350 trucks sat only a very small touch low in the front.. Now we are talking about 05 and up coil spring frontend trucks. Or at least i am.. I can't speak for the leaf spring frontend trucks 04 and back. I'm gonna look in coming days and see if i can find a vin number for my old 07 and check with the dealer and see if i can get a spring part number based on that.. If i do.. i will put them on the front of my 06 dually with and without the spacer to see how they stack up...
