Ranger front end swap, Can this be done?

I have a 05 edge and want to put coil overs in place of the torsion bars. Can this be done with taking the front end assembly from a ranger with the coil over setup? what all would I have to replace to make this work?

Theres a member on here integraxsomething that is swapping his Superlift front suspension to the RCD coilovers using there brakcets and misc items. We've been talking about if this could work with a stock truck just using shorter coilovers.
