Rear leafs????????

Stupid question but I have to try... Would the rear springs from a 99-07 superduty fit my OBS?

HHMMMMMMMMMM??
I am debating wether to rebuild my old packs or to find a nice set of used superduty springs in nice shape. Im lookin at about $75 for each pack to be rebuilt.

I believe that the SD springs use metric bolts which are slightly larger. The front springs would fit as well up to 2004. Same story as the rear larger bolts.

Rear should be very close to stock...depends on condition of your old ones.
Front SD springs will only fit using a RS kit..I developed this mod 8 years ago and have helped hundreds do this. This cannot be used with a D50.
If I can help PM me.
