350 springs on 250??

Got the opportunity to get some 350 rear springs at a good price. Will they swap onto my 250 without any problems. I'm wanting the little stiffer suspension for when I haul and tow, I currently get more sag than I'd like.

measure your eyes on your truck the only thing different is weight rating that im aware of you can look at your spring code on door jam. are they stock springs? if they wont work for you let me know i have an 8in and want lower height.

Rear springs are the same, just different capacity ratings. However as mentioned, you will want to check spring codes. I believe 99-07 use the same springs.

Justin, I have a set of 03 F350 springs if you're interested. I have both front and rear springs. Rears have overloads and I also have a brand new set of top overloads. There is nothing wrong with the springs. LMK

Im not familiar with all the spring codes. Ill see if I can find the capacity ratings for ea code after work.

Do you know what the codes are for the replacement springs? We just want to be sure you are not wasting money on the same springs

Not sure, haven't got them yet. I know they're from an 06 350 dually, so I'd imagine they would be stronger. mine have got to be the softest of the options cause I get quite a bit of sag when loaded.

Non dually..get B codes only difference from yours is the top overload..which requires the frame stops. If you have top overloads now they are the same as a f350. Springs will still drop 2"+- before they hit the frame stops.

Air bags best option, using daystars new bag cup

Dually springs will definitely do the trick, I just hope they are not too stiff when unloaded. My dually doesn't seem too bad. I think it rides pretty well for the big truck it is

No to worried bout it being to stiff. Buddy if mine has a short bed 350 with overload springs and all and it doesn't seem bad at all. Plus got the wife's air ride armada to haul the family around in.
