If they are from a 4x4, then they would work in your 06. The real question is what spring rate are they, and what spring rate are your existing springs? The max capacity front coils on either a F350 or F250 are 6,000LB, and come with the Snow Plow Prep Package. Depending upon what options your truck came with, it should have either 5,200LB, 5,600LB or 6,000LB coils.
My suggestion, and one that works perfect with larger and heavier front bumpers and winches, is to go with F550 coils. The largest are 7,000LB, and one lower is 6,500LB. I put 7,000LBs on my F250, and my truck is 0.5" nose high with these springs combined with a 1" Icon TEI (under coil) spacer. It also rides noticeably firmer when empty (doesn't bottom out pulling into my suburban driveway anymore), and is perfect with our Lance 845 on the back.
Coils for these trucks are cheap - about $85 to $95 each. For that price I wouldn't buy used. Got mine from Tousley Ford.
