swapping a lift kit

Hey guys, got a quick question. My brother has a BDS 4" lift kit on his 06 F350 powerstroke and he is getting an 09 F450. I have an 09 F350 that I would like to swap his lift kit onto.

He just got the BDS parts for the front end as he added the extra heavy leaf springs in the rear that raised it 5"(after he broke his main leaves with a salt spreader).

I have air bags on the rear of my truck(we own a landscaping company and haul lots of equipment) so I am ordering a set of PMF rear track bars with a 3" lift block (over stock). So the lift block plus my adjustability of air bags will put me between 4-6" of lift in the rear.

Will the parts from the BDS kit swap over? My main concerns are the track bar relocation bracket and the radius arm drop brackets. I havent been able to cross reference part numbers so thats why I coming here.

Let me know if you guys have any ideas or need more info.

Also, these are both srw 350s, mine is a cc lb, his is a sc lb.

the two parts that dont fit are the track bar drop bracket and sway bay links. everything else fits. I went threw this when I put my 09 lift on my 06.

Thanks for the heads up! I'll order a new relocation bracket then. I was planning to get the PMF sway bar end links anyway b/c I have a boss plow mount that mounts over and replaces the stock sway bar brackets that hold it to the frame rails, so I need a slightly more custom size.
