Question Need help to ID Front OBS Leaf Springs

I need some help from some OBS F350 owners, with stock front leaf springs, or someone who is up on their leaf spring identification skills!


I am doing a Dana 60 swap into my 1997 F-250. For step one, I wanted to do the swap and add stock OBS F350 front springs under it.


I recently got these, but do they look like F250 springs to you?


Can anyone help me ID these, or can any of you F350 owners check your front leaf springs......maybe count the leafs, leaf thicknesses, and oh yeah......pics would be great too!!!

Thanks!!

Wow!! Thank you everyone for the quick reply and pics!!!!!! For some reason, I thought I have seen some swap pics, from others, who went from F350 to SD springs, and that the 350's had 3 leafs. Oh well, I am mistaken. But that is why I wanted to check.


I really appreciate your time and feedback.


The .org rocks!!

I also wanted to know this. I have a 96 F-250 and I didn't know if the 350 springs would bolt right up or not. I need a D-60 bad.

I believe that I found them on this board. I received a PM and purchased them.

Yes, the OBS F350 springs will bolt right up in OBS F250 trucks.

At some point, maybe later in the year, I might switch these out to the SD springs I have. But right now, I have many home projects to do first.

The springs I have are not worn whatsoever!!!! I was actually hoping for a worn set so that the front would come down a hair, but these are some good springs!!
