96 f250 eclb lift swap with 96 7.5 f350 6 inch skyjacker

this is my first post, I have a 96 eclb7.3 stock suspension.. I want to upgrade, I was gonna buy new but my buddy has a 96 reg. cab f350 with the d60 I need and the truck has a 6 inch skyjacker lift. his truck is the 7.5 460 gas. will that suspension work on my truck? I know the front end swap is easy just don't know if the lift springs will work. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Think the 7.3 and 460 weight is roughly the same... if they are, go for it.

EDIT..... 460=720lbs dry.... 7.3=920lbs dry..... so 200lbs heavier, so it wont be a 6" lift. Do a RSK with SD springs from PMF.
