i dont think you can, the way the pin on the leaf spring is set up, it wont do in the bottom hole if you flip it and im not sure if it would fit into the shackle like that. however, if your willing to try it, why not, maybee im wrong.

I would not do that. Just buy add a-leaf for $75 on ebay and call it a day. You will get a 1.5" lift out of it and will help level your truck out.

I dont know if i would do that. From what i know/have read if i can remember that the F-350 springs are softer to accomadate have a stiffer axle. So that means the F-250 have firmer leafs for the TTB so they wouldn't sag as much. But i could be wrong but i hear of people doing D60 swaps and they get f350 or superduty front springs to make it ride smother.
