Basically replacement springs that are capable of holding more load. They came stock on f450's and 250/350's that were equipped with a snow plow package.

Re: Add a leaf leveling kit

How much does it lift the truck? What's the cost?

Depends on the current state of the truck. I'm looking at about 2.5" higher than what it is now(so close to level). PM sent.

Please measure your fenders before and after the X-code springs go in. I'm back to thinking I want a set for my 03 and I'm curious to see how much the front of your truck comes up with the X-codes installed.

Do you still have the factory leafs in front? If so what spring code is listed on your door tag?
