Leaf spring difference?

What is the difference in the 05-07 f-250 rear leafs, compared to the 08-12 rear leafs?

Have two sets of 8" lift deavers for 05-07, but I don't think they will work with my 12 due to the spring length difference right?

PMF shackle relocating kit will allow you to run those 08 leafs.

He doesn't have any 08 up springs other than the ones on his truck in question the 2012

He wants to see about using the Deaver lift springs for a 08 minus on his 2012


OP sell the short Deavers and spend the Grand for a new set
those 2 sets should get you about 600$ I willingly paid 300 for a set and dumped 150 bucks rebuilding them ,, before I realized they were old and sagged LOL

I appreciate the referral but I dont think you read what he was looking to do correctly. Our '08+ spring hanger conversion brackets will work on a 99-07 trucks allowing the use of a 2008+ spring to be used. A spring from a 99-07 truck will not work on a 2008+ truck.

Like Zmann said, dump the springs and get a pair for a newer model. Shouldnt have too much trouble selling those Deavers. They are a good pack depending on how/what they were built for.
