D60 help

I know there are hundreds of threads of dana 60 questions, but i didnt want to read through all of them I have a 97 f250 4x4 7.3 and i found a 97 f350 4x4 460 online for $700. It has the same gear ratio, and i know ill need the steering linkage. My only question is the springs. would it be best to get springs from one with the 7.3? I would like to do a 4in lift. Any help would be much appreciated!!

if you are just swapping it get the 350 springs, the 250 springs will work, but are stiffer than the 350. if you want a lift go with a RSK and super duty springs.

When i Did the swap in my 97 , My axle and springs came out of a 89 crew cab long bed with a 351. they made my reg. cab sit 3/4 of and inch higher in the front, than the st**** 250 rear height. It lifted the front 3 inches over stock.
