Re: leaf spring swap

are you talking about front leaf springs or rear leaf springs? Also F250 leaf springs on the super duties I know (99-12) are the same as F350 leaf springs only diffrence is blocks which F350s are taller blocks making it taller then the F250. So if you are putting the F350 blocks in then yes you will need taller blocks. Plus F350s have higher GVRW ratings then F250s only other diffrence in a F250 and F350 other then badges.

Re: leaf spring swap

Are you trying to raise the truck, or just looking for more carrying capacity? F-350 and F-250 leaf springs will interchange (they did on my Excursion and are a good fix for Excursions that bottom out off-road) and come in different weight ratings for different GVW's. Check the color coding with your parts man and keep in mind that changing the blocks will not raise the GVW. Also, rear axles vary according to the vehicle's GVW. My F-350 (dually) has a different (Dana) rear axle than an F-250.
