I'd like to know also if it could be done, or what you would have to do to make them work.

I don't know about the OBS, but on my 2000SD I changed out front and rear springs for 350 ones. Don't know if fronts would level out or not.

The front OBS F250 springs are different..much stiffer so using F350 springs will more than likely not raise the truck and make the suspension worse. You could get a 2" mini spring kit but you will run into alignment problems and will need ball joint eccentric's.
Best option but $$ is replace the D50 with a D60
