It would be nice for someone to get their hands on a set, take some measurements and post them on the forum.

Well - a quick search turned up these:

2017 FORD F-150 RAPTOR FRONT SHOCKS WITH COIL SPRINGS & REAR SHOCKS NEW TAKE OFF | eBay

It would be interesting to know if this is a workable upgrade alternative.

I've seen a set or two on RDC. Way too expensive just to pick up for dicking around purposes.

Absolutely true - but with some of the money spent on folks trucks and creativity/determination (we've seen totaled trucks resurrected...just because). I wouldn't/couldn't justify doing it, but there might reasonably be some who would.
