Lift kit difference between 06-08 trucks?

I'm looking at buying a used ProComp 6" full lift kit that a guy had on a 2006 F250. My truck is a 2008 F350. I'm wondering what, if any differences there are, or will the kit bolt right on? I don't want to spend the money if I can't use everything I buy.

I know that the '08 and above trucks have a longer rear leaf spring. So if the pro-comp kit has replacement rear leafs, they would not work.

Also, I am pretty sure (not 100% certain) the '08+ trucks have a different u-bolt setup in the rear. ('08+ the u-bolts go over the top of the leaf spring and are bolted to a plate under the axle, where as the pre '08 trucks have a u-bolt that goes under the axle and bolts to a plate on top of the leaf spring)

I am not certain if there are any differences with the front as far as a lift goes though? (I think the sway bar & mount may be different on the '08-'10 trucks than the '05-'07)
