With 4" lift coils.. you will need:

radius arm drop brackets
a drop pitman arm
axle pivot drop brackets
possibly extended brake lines

Here is my 93 Ranger 4x4 with 2" suspension lift and 3" body lift (5" lift with 33's) WOW THAT WAS A LONG TIME AGO, AND A DIFFERENT LOOK!

To be honest I wouldn't bother with those coils. I know it seems like it would be a good idea with the price, but you will be spending more time and effort trying to get alot of parts to fit with it. The F150 coils would also be very stiff. I suggest you look around for an entire kit that has the correct coils and drop brackets. They can be found quite cheap for your truck.

thats the same thing i was thinkin while i've been tryin to figure everything out, i know it'd be a hell of a lot easier to just buy a kit but im on a very very tight budget, so idk what to do but i wanna lift my truck a lot and not just get a smaller lift cause its cheaper cause i know down the road ill be like i wish i woulda got a bigger one

Start looking around at lift kits for your truck. They are quite affordable. Rough country sells a 4" lift kit for around 500 bucks. If you really want more lift than that just save up and buy a nicer kit. Even the skyjacker 6" kits are under 1500.
