1994 Ford f350, 7.3, 4x4, auto, crew cab long bed, strait piped.
I dont think you could use the whole pack, buit what I did on my 95 was use the main leaf from a rear pack as an add a leaf on the front, jus cut it to the lenght I needed

Your '84 is 25 years old and qualifies as an antique, so I'll assume you're asking about the '94.
The rear main leaf is 56" long. The front main leaf is only 52.24" long. 3.76" difference. So you can't just bolt it up - even with a "bigger hammer". Maybe a spring shop could shorten it so it'd fit?
My Sierra Blanca in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it a coupla years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream.
