Question Just rolled 100k, have a couple questions

hey guys, i had a couple questions about my 7.3. first off how long can i expect my injectors to last? i just rolled over 100,000. I installed my DP tuner with 98 and change so its still pretty new. Also i was wondering how long i can expect my leaf springs to last? I have a feeling i may have cracked one cuz the truck sometimes looks like it leans to one side. Thanks for your help

My truck is knocking at 211K miles on stock injectors, etc. I treat the injectors to good clean biofuel mixtures B-20 to B-50 depending on temperatures where I live. Or regular diesel with Diesel Kleen, etc.

No real way of saying when the injectors will go but you're in really good shape at only 100k miles. That truck is still new in many ways with only 100K........so have fun breaking it in! I personally would drive it and not look back! Just keep good fuel and/or additives in there

My 02 has 105K on it and runs GREAT! I tow VERY heavy and don't have a spring problem. I'd be checking the pavement it's on or load in the rig. I too have a DP tuner and love it. Changing the fuel filter regularly is the best thing you can do for those injectors.

02 F350 CC 7.3 PS, auto, 6x6, 4.10 gears LB. AFE stage 2 intake, 4" AFE SS exh, 6.0 atf cooler, DP tuner with five stages Eng Temp gauge, EGT guage and Trans temp gauge. J.Woods valve body ATS turbo housing. Cooling sys filter & waterless coolant. NON WORKING POS FASS fuel filter sys. Brightbox headlites. I don't care what they say "There's no replacement for displacement." Don't believe statements about anything being better than a 7.3
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!

How bad is the lean? Mine leans almost 1" lower on the drivers side. It did before and after the lift. A LOT of Super Duty's have that drivers side sag. It's really common, but it's usually an inch or less and is unnoticed a lot

My injectors still passed buzz & contribution tests at 200k with flying colors. I wouldn't worry about yours for a good while
