4x4 Air bags on a 4x2?

I have been looking to put air bags on my '97 f-350 DRW 4x2 and found a nice used set from a '95 F-250 4x4 SRW and want to know if they will work? Also, i have a 5er hitch but i dont see how that affects in since its mounted to the frame in front and behind the axle. any advice is much appreciated.

Yes it will work, air bags for towing are usually not designed different Kause of drive train, more of a universal fit kinda thing, but the 4x4 does have 3" wide springs vs your 2.5" iirc, but still should fit, I put 2wd air bags on a 4x4 with no issues before 95 f150-97 f350

There is no difference

You just need 8" between the tire and frame for them to work
