08 lift compatible on 2012?

Are some or all or none of the lift components from and 08 f350 to a 12 f350?

I want to bump my truck up but after I figure the cost of doing it the right way, Carli, new wheels and tires, although my wheels are fine just want new ones, potentially a regear, bumpers ft and rear, and painted fender flares I will be damn near all the way to just trading in my truck and getting a fairly new 6.7.

So that being said I figure I can justify if most of the parts are transferable...any info on the lift components, wheel fitment, bumper fitment between the generations would be great.

Thanks

Also does anyone know if the purchase of the long travel air bags are necessary.

I currently have the firestone ride rites, work great for the times I use it, and I see they sell a spacer for lifted vehicles, about 60 bucks rather than buying the long travels

will the bags rip apart or something if the suspension articulates too much??
Thanks

It depends on what suspension you're talking about and at what height. In our 4.5" systems, the radius arm drops are the same from 2005-2013 as are the springs. The brake lines, sway bar end links, and add-a-packs are different as is the valving in the shocks (for the most part).

The firestones will limit your rear travel to 5" max and will ramp up really quick even at minimum pressures causing a very stiff rear ride, even when unloaded. They definitely have their place as they're stout bags that can handle a ton of weight but there are better options out there for guys not hauling all the time. Our bags will cycle the full 12" of our rear suspension systems and, given their tapered piston design, they will not hinder ride quality when unloaded.
