97 F250HD Leaf Springs - Advice Needed

Just changed out my shocks and noticed my front leaf springs have flatten out to less than 2 inches from the bump-stops. The cost of replacements through my local parts shop is ridiculous ($275 each). Online costs look lower though I'm concerned about getting the right match. I'm looking to stick with stock height. Can anyone recommend a good source for these, or have any thoughts on helper springs, etc..?

Thanks in advance,

Brian

Try a Ford dealer - ask for a price on HD complete spring pack replacements. For the price of 4 individual long leafs replaced (had a broken leaf on all 4 corners) it was cheaper for me to replace the entire sets to a heavier rating. Labor $$ is the difference I guess????

Time for a lift. Also try calling Deaver and see what they can do. Home They make custom leaf springs.
