F150 leaf springs fit a ranger?

i know the chevy 1500 springs will fit on a ranger by moving front perches forward, but will the f150 springs be the same?

anybody have experience with this?

i dont think f150 springs will fit because they are wider than ranger springs. you could change out the hangers and then they would fit. rangers have a 2.5" spring and i believe that f150's have a 3" spring

ya the newer F-150's have 3" leaf springs so it would have to be from an older one.
