6" to 8" lift

I have a fabtech basic 6" lift on my 08 f250 and I'm wanting to go to the 8". My question is will the drop brackets and pitman arm from the 6" lift still work if I just change out the 6" coil springs for 8"?

Not sure if your kit uses the same drop brackets as my radius arm kit but im looking at doing the same. I compared the part numbers on the fabtech site and it looks like they use the same brackets for the 6 and 8 inch lifts. Been thinking about just adding a 2 inch spacer to the spring.

Yea I thought about maybe just putting my leveling spacer back I know a lot of people talk about a spring being safer than a spacer. Might see if I can find just a 1" spacer

There are spacers which are just thicker versions of the coil isolators you already have on top of spring so just as safe
