Question What do I need to fit raptor suspension on xlt

Ok so I have 2013 2wd xlt a buddy of mine is selling me his raptor front coil overs and rear shocks for cheap .from what I've read and seen the rear shocks just bolt right up,but will they lift the rear? Also I now I need lca and uca for the front but is that it? Anything else needed? Also I've heard about people saying that you need to run 18's and not 17's due to something about them not fitting ? I plan on using the truck for some off-roading here and there nothing to serious as she is still a daily just would like to have some raptor like fun every once in a while. So another question is can I get away with keep the 17's for as long as I need them they're raptor stock wheels btw. Sorry for the novel just really confused been having a headache trying to get all this info it's my first truck so I'm pretty new to all this thanks again

You'll still need the uca's, lca's, tie rods, and brake lines.

You can simply just install the rear shocks if you'd like, but if your going the performance suspension route, you'd have great results running a progressive leaf pack such as deaver or national to compliment the front suspension.

But the raptor leaf springs are direct bolt on right? I'm asking because I'm getting the coil overs shocks upper a arms and leafs springs all for a grand .Also is an aftermarket spindle the same for a raptor and f150? Say like the one from Baka kits that's a 4 inch lift or will I need to get a raptor spindle?

The rear leaf packs will be a direct swap. I'd you're doing that you'll need the raptor read blocks and longer u bolts as well. Not sure if you'll need the raptor bump stop or not. As far as the front spindles, they should be the same. If you're looking into an aftermarket spindle setup, you may as well ditch the raptor deal all together.
