2008-10 Leaf Spring Info

Does anybody have the 2008-10 leaf spring code chart? I picked up a set of leafs from a 2010 F350 pictured below but was surprised by the 2+1 setup. Does anybody else have this leaf spring setup?






huskyspring was the only place that listed the spring code above but the comments section have it listed as a 2011 F250 2wd

Are you sure? I thought so at first but they don't have the reverse ubolt mounts like the other 2011+ springs I've seen

As long as we are on '08 and up leafs, which mount has to be moved to utilize these on an '07 and older, the front or rear mount?

Karl and his 2003 6.0

Barefoot Accelerator Pedal
TRICO Force wiper blades
Yellow Military Aircraft Valve Stem Caps
Offensive "Stick Family" Decal
Big Ol'Honkin 1 1/4" Shank Receiver Hitch


WHAT!?! I was trying to list stuff that everyone else
hasn't already listed for their truck!

The front mount... by 8" and it can be achieved by moving your stock mount or by purchasing the conversion kit from Trevor at Precision Metal Fabrication

FYI....half of my customers with '08 up including 11's and newer complain about either the ride quality of the rear springs or that they are saging....good luck.

Are these people that have upgraded to them from older SD's? I can't fathom someone owning a 2008 or older and complaining about ride quality in the 08-newer. I've heard of the sagging but thats because of payload decrease to soften the ride.

If you're having people complain after the upgrade, then you'll save me a day of putting these on

So now I'm thinking these did come off a 2011. I've taken a picture of the top of the leaf spring and it looks like this is where the 2011+ ubolt mounts go.

My question would be... has anybody taken this piece off and is this what it looks like when it's removed?

No as I stated these are '08 up owners....I first started having customers complain when Ford went to F codes in '05 trucks...I never get complaints from pre '05 with b codes and good shocks.
