F350's dont have coil springs, they are leaf sprung.

I sure dont want to give you any misinformation. I know my '95 f350 is 4 wheel leaf spring, solid front axle. I think the F250's in this year range are the same (tbs, but leaf sprung). but lifting the front of your truck with just taller springs depending on the lift amount will cause geometry issues with the suspension and steering without proper brackets that most lift kits come with.

4 wheel drive is 4 corner leaf spring.
2 wheel drive is front coil and rear leaf.

i never saw a 350 with a 5.0 in it. and 5.8 is not very common either. the standard engine for the 350 was the 7.3 diesel and the 7.5 gas.
