F250 vs F350 Rear Leaf Springs

Is there a difference in the rear leaf springs on a F250 vs F350 other than weight capacity? I've got a broken leaf on my drivers side right now and I might take a trip to the junkyard and see if I can find a "new" set. If I come across a F350 my first thought is to grab those. Breakage is natures way of telling you to upgrade right [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. I realize the ride might be a little rougher unloaded.

Re: F250 vs F350 Rear Leaf Springs

It depends.

All F-350 SRW and many F-250 have the same Code "B" rear springs. But some F-250s have the weaker "F-250 Code A" rear springs.

Both will fit nicely.

Your spring code is on the lower door post behind the driver's door. It will be a two-character code, with the first character being the front springs and the second the rear springs. Yours is probably "VA". Ford put the code "B" rear springs in F-250 around the 2001 and 2002 model years, but I don't think they did that for your '99.5.

I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream.
