they should bolt in, but first do you need the load capacity of the 3/4 ton springs? it will ride rougher, it may be just your springs are weak, and a set of replacement 1/2 tons from another truck would be a cheap fix

yes the 3/4 and 1 ton springs will bolt in

some F-150s had 2.5" springs, so just upgrading to a 3" 1/2 ton might net some gain if that's the case
