Your just going to swap you f-250 leafs for f350 leafs?
rears or all the way around?
My biggest problem was I dont have a jack or jack stands tall enough to keep the truck off the ground when trying to install my leveling leafs in the front. My lift get the truck off the ground but the arm was in the way to sneek it it. If your going to swap the whole "pack" it wouldnt be a problem. 4 nuts to the axles and 2 nut/bolt set ups to the frame.

The problem is your F250 has a TTB front axle, which uses reverse arch springs. While the F350 has a solid axle which uses conventional arched springs. Now can you swap? I honestly couldn't tell you except I have never heard of anyone doing it which leads me to believe no.
