What would you do?
I just bought a 97 OBS F250 4wd ext cab and have not driven yet because the passenger front spring is broken. Here are my choices as I see them.
Buy a new spring $179.
Buy a used spring and replace the one side.(unsure of price)
Buy 2 used springs and replace both.
Look for a Dana 60 and do the swap.($600-$1000)
Buy a 4" lift kit from skyjacker.($1100)
I guess the easiest would be to buy one spring and replace it and then in the spring start thinking about the Dana 60 swap? I just hate to spend Nearly $200 for a band-aid type job. I am in upstate NY and it is the dead of winter so I really don't want to be doing to much suspension work outside if I don't have too.
Sorry if this is a newbie question..... just thought I'd throw it out there to get some opinions. Thanks for any advice you may offer
