I don't know but you might want to check with a local spring shop to see what they'd charge to make up whatever it is you need. It's been quite a few years since I've bought some but the last time I checked the price on new springs was cheap enough that I didn't feel like it was worth messing around with used.

i know u cant use late 99-03 as the spring is a different shape they are more sqaure as where mine are a little more round. I would wait for a tech but im positive it would need to be for the obs.

Wow! I would say so. Was that installed? I"m pretty sure that I've bought a full set of individual leaves for both sides for around $200.00 . That was a while ago though.

The only SD springs you can use on a OBS are the rears..B codes work great. You can use SD springs on the front with a D60-RS kit.

any year rears will work, I just put 06 350 springs in my Bronco. Only modification was enlarging the shackle bolt holes for the larger super duty bolts, and I needed to trim off about 1/2" from the bottom leaf so the shackle could move
