f450 front springs on a 2002 f350 cclb

I want to level my truck but keep the factory ride so I looked up f450 springs and they hold more weight than 350's. But will they bolt right up or does it involve fab work? Thx

all the 450 and 550 front springs are the normal old Xcodes 6000lbs from the f250 and f350 trucks. but they do have heavier springs for the 450 and 550 trucks so you have to watch out for what ones you have

as stated above, the X code springs (also the "plow prep" package or something of that nature) they have 3 leafs instead of 2. Seems like it's not a very popular avenue for leveling, most people go with add a leafs, or like I did with lift shackle and hangers

Already tried leveling kit, it just pushed the leaf springs down and gave it bad axal rap.

if your keeping your truck stockish, then buy a set of x-code leaf springs. Like i said all 250 and 350 trucks could be ordered with them, its the x-code snow plow option. All 450 and 550 trucks come stock with them, but the 4 and 550 trucks also have a heavier spring the the x-code. Ive never seen or read anyone using the 4 or 550 x-code because they get the ones from the 2 and 350 trucks. But since they are the same they will bolt right up. Your going to need BRAND NEW u bolts, DO NOT reuse the old ones, and try to find a used set of x-codes off a gas truck and try to get a set off a truck that does not have a plow. Even though they are plo0w springs they sag just like a normal spring so its pointless to get a set off a plow truck or a diesel, they will be sagged out. If not you can buy nice level springs from Zone, pro comp. I installed Pro Comp 22210 level springs on my 2004 F350 and they are awesome, even though they are a five leaf per side made for a V10 and diesel they ride like a dream on my 5.4 truck
