Advantages of D60 without RSK?

Ive got a f250 but i want to do the D60 swap with RSK... who doesn't? But after pricing the whole thing(wheels,tires,RSK,Springs,ect.) its gonna be way out of budget for me right now, got into accident so getting whole truck repainted. If i just did a d60 swap with stock 350 springs how will it ride? and will i get any lift up front? Also ive heard people mention f350 rear blocks? will i need to swap those or the springs as well?

That what I did with mine I still wanna do the rsk but thats a chunk of cash, with the 60 and 350 springs it will ride better and where the tires much better, I got about 2'' of lift in the front of mine but I was running 460 springs, you will need the 350 rear blocks to make it sit right

It will ride better because the F350 are not as thick as the F250 springs. You can expect at least 2" of lift in the front just by installing the Dana 60 and F350 springs. You will most likely need the F350 rear blocks or otherwise your truck may sit with the front higher than the rear.

I have some F350 blocks that I could trade for 5.5 inch blocks? If you have some.

the d60 and f350 springs will make it sit completely level, about 1.5-2 inches of lift up front, the ttb springs are thinker and more stiff so the ride is improved, but it is still gonna ride like a truck lol, but not as tough as the d50 was/is the rsk with SD springs is a nicer ride even still, so good luck wither way

rear springs are literally the exact same, only difference is the block between the axle and springs, its noticeably larger by a couple inches, i never installed mine tho, i dont mind it level and with a weight distribution hitch i am never to nose high

I got my D60 from a 93 with a 460 that only had 110k on the ticker, but I still wanna do balljoints, and I have to do inner axle seals.
