pretty sure the only differance is the block and the springs are the same, unless you mean adding overloads? (which some f250s have)

Which I wish I would've know while shopping around, it was hard enough to find a SRW 6 speed extended cab long bed. The front springs might be a little softer too though. However, you can get x-codes for about $220 online.

F350 are the same as F250, like stated above the blocks are the only difference.

F250 are 2.75"
F350 are 3.75"

Gotta be careful cause there are blocks that are angled and ones that are not, it has to do with your long box, crew cab etc. I think the short wheel base trucks have the angled blocks as opposed to the crew cab long boxes do not have the angled blocks because there is less angle on the drive shaft, I think?

I have f.350 dually leafs on my truck. They bolted right up, only difference was an extra leaf. The back end is noticeably higher and never squats when loaded or with the trailer on. I think it looks nice too with the back end up. My profile pic is with the old leafs.

thanks, thats what i was looking for. RV squats the rear end to just before the overloads. when they engage it makes for a rough ride.
