Lift from an '08 fit my '05?

I've got a local guy with a 4" ProComp lift for sale off his 2008 F250. I believe its coils in the front, blocks out back, drop radius brackets and drop track bar bracket. Will it fit my 2005 F250? I need to know ASAP because I was gonna get it this afternoon.

Thanks!
Jeremy

Should fit just fine. 4" blocks in the back on top of the factory blocks is a no-no (axle wrap). I'd look for some new springs in the near future.

Factory block is 1" correct? His block is 5", so I wouldn't need to double stack right?

The trackbar bracket, the pitman arm and the sway bar set up are different between the two trucks. The coils and shocks will work fine, not 100% sure on the radius drop brackets.

Thanks for the help guys! I went to see the lift and was disappointed. It was mixed parts. Some of which I couldn't even tell the brand. So I decided to wait. My ultimate setup is a 4-link 7" ICON lift anyway. Might as well wait.

Excellent choice!! Thats what used to be on my truck, except I added the 1" TEI spacer to bring it up to 8":

I believe the 7" will be plenty for me. I don't plan on running over a 37x13.5 which I have on the truck now with stock 20's and a 2.5" leveling kit. Only difference is I'm probably going to go to a 20x10 or 20x12. gonna be a while though! Gotta get the cash!
