I used the 1-5-0's w/ skys front hangers so i would imagine the rest would work, just not the #'s to relocate the hangers and stuff....

The thing to check on those f-150's is the size of the spring bolt. I dont know what the f-150 spring is, but chevys are 9/16".

They are the same length from the center pin to the rear eye as chevy springs, just the front 1/2 is shorter. I think they would make good spring to use out back, although, It will probabally tilt your pinion up more than chevys would.

Thus far, I havent seen anyone on this board who used f-150's in the rear, only up front. But, if my truck didnt have chevys on it when I bought it, it would have gotten f-150's insted.

If the spring bolts on your springs are 9/16" then yes, you can use the sky kit. If not, then no.
