'01 suspension compatible with '04???

Is the '01 7.3L 4X4 suspension compatible with same set up '04 6.0L? I am in the process of getting more information. I have an acquaintence that I am going to see who has the 7.3 with a lift. He wants to do a complete swap back to stock. Sorry, I do not know what type of 6" lift it is yet. But, in a nutshell are the suspensions the same for these year models?

thanks in advance, and I'll post more info later when I am more informed.

I believe the suspension are compatible. They both have leaf springs up front. The only thing that may be different (don't quote me on this) is that the U Bolts may be different. 04s have simi-round U bolts and I'm not sure what 01s have (maybe the same?). I don't think that really matters because you don't want reuse U Bolts anyway.

thanks for the advice... I met an individual who recently became paraplegic (very sad story)... Do to his current condition he wants to take his truck back to stock, so we are going to a one for one swap. Just wanted to make sure the lift was compatible before we started tearing things down.
