2004 F-250 rear springs swap to front of 2003 f350

Hey, Just got my first truck 2 months ago, so im pretty new to all of this but I searched for a while and thought I would give this a shot as I havent found a clear answer.

I have a 2003 F350 4x4 and I want to lift the front about 2 inches. I have a set of 2004 f250 rear leaf springs and wanted to know if they would fit on the front of my F350 and if they would lift it any.

If you don't know off hand how should I go about figuring it out myself?

I appreciate any help yall can give...

Post #1 questions remind me of playing Russian roulette.

Search ford lift kits on google and buy something made for you truck.

Pull out the tape measure and compare both. You'll soon notice that they won't work.

I would sell them and purchase the correct set for the front. Rear are not meant for the front as well as the other way around. You could also buy a 4inch lift for the front and put those on the rear. Always recommend doing it right when you have your life as well as others in your hands as you drive down the road.
