Question swapping suspensions

My buddy has a 99 f-250 7.3 with a lift and is wanting to swap it out with a f-350 v-10 gas rig suspension will this work? Have any of you done this before? how hard would it be to do it?

im pretty sure the v10 and the diesel springs are the same, its the gas v8 ones that are different. I just swapped my stockers for a lift, got it done in a day. its not too bad just make sure everything has had time to soak for a few days in some wd40 or pb blaster..trust me it helps. mine came apart pretty nice and easy...his, not so much. he broke 3 u bolts lol

Yup, They are the same springs and will work. I think that there is only 150 lbs difference between the two engines.
