It is diff

for the 250's and 350's but I think on the 250's it comes with some extra brackets due to the twin traction beam suspension. My buddy put add a leafs in his 95 and it didn't change anything cuz he didnt get the 250 brackets.

I had a local spring shop build one leaf and place it on the bottom of the spring pack. Picked the front end up high enough to squeeze 35's on without a problem (aside from front bumper spaced out 1.5").

Skyjacker offers a 2"-2.5" add-a-leaf kit for the front of our trucks. The part number is F46D, and it requires a new u-bolt kit.
