blue spring upgrade

When doing the blue spring upgrade, must you buy the $70 kit with the new housing and the whole works, or will the $30 spring and o-ring only kit suffice?

Thanks for your opinions!

Just the spring and the funny shaped O-ring. Heck, I've even used the same O-ring on occasion with no leaks. Also never had to take anything apart except the cover for the spring. Never felt like loosing coolant for no reason. LOL

I bought the whole kit. I know ppl here have done just the partial kit but you have to be careful with the housing when removing it.

if you dn't wanna spend $70 don't unless your housing is cracked or you just like shiny stuff... I regretted buying the one from ford because the new housing is still sitting in my pass door cubby lol....

Never really noticed a difference though but im still pretty young to the diesel world and figured I'd do what ppl recommended that had more experience etc...

-2004 F350 CCLB 4x4: Sinister Race solutions kit, CAT ELC Edge CS, SCT SF3, PHP Ficm programmer, Procomp, Rough country, and Nitto goodies.
-2004 excursion, banks exhaust, 03 turbo, afe intake
-2006 f350 king ranch, 10 in fabtech, 40in tires, sct tunes,

currently-1999 F250 SBRB 4X4 First 7.3 and feels good to be back in a diesel....

Interested in learning something new?

This mod basically insures you that a weak spring isn't going to cost you thousands of dollars in fuel injector repair. Some have noticed that to achieve optimal performance you need a regulated return system and turn the fuel down to around 52-55 psi. Without regulating a healthy fuel system its normally around 65psi. But this is a whole different topic.

I was also curious about the difference between the kits, I guess I'll buy the spring and keyhole shaped O-ring instead of the complete kit
