Dually leaf springs same as regular non dually?

I searched but hadn't had any luck, its like google on here why too many hits back.

Anyways on my 2005 Dually I noticed I have 2 broken leaf springs on each side, not sure when they broke to be honest as it still rides good. In my search for low mileage used or new take off are the non dually leafs the same as the dually leafs? I'm going to hit up the city spring shop today to price up new - hoping to be pleasantly surprised by a great price - just keeping my options open.

thanks

as far as I know they are all the same. F250, F350, SRW, DRW, the only thing that changed was the block under the springs.

IIRC the individual leafs are the same, but the amount of springs in the pack will vary depending on your spring package, ie towing/camper package, DRW vs SRW, towboss, etc.

I was looking an an F250 today and it had the same number of springs as my f350.... I would think its spring rate is different.

As far as I know, no it is the exact same spring pack.

I think all DRW have the overloads from factory but thats it.

I think your right, I think its the overload leaf that make it an f350 pack or not. Well thats great as that really opens up the options of getting a replacement set.
