For '05-'07 F250 4x4 owners

I am in the process of looking for a f-250 4x4 '04-'07. For the 05-07 with the coil springs how are they holding up? I do not intend on lifting the truck, nor hooking up a plow. I know from my other Fords that coil springs break. Is this the case?

I have a 05 with a leveling kit, and it spends most of its time on the streets. ...I love the ride of the coil springs...it has a tighter turning radius and rides smoother than the leafs spring fronts.

Never heard of them breaking, but if you want an extra set of stock coils off an 05, let me know. I got mine that i took off.

I have 104K miles on my truck with a leveling kit and the springs have no sag at all. The truck also spends most of the day on very bumpy dirt roads and the front end is still solid as a rock.

Thanks to all for replying. I was just wondering. Had an old explorer with a cracked sping and a couple of Taurus. I know of newer IRS explorer's having the same problem.

My old 94 150 had both front coils break, but i think it was mainly due to rust. The ones on my 05 SD seem to have a much better rubber coating and seems to be holding up great. havn't seen it flake yet, and my truck is just about to roll over 150k so the spring has hit a few bumps. Over all im happy but upgrade the shocks and steering stabilizer and you will be much happier with the ride. AMAZING what new shocks will do
