If the gasser is a 460 they are strong enough and you want to use them. The F250 springs are actually stiffer than the F350 springs to fight the rotational force of the D50 as it cycles.
What he said. I used the 460 gasser springs when I first swapped my Dana 60 in. It rode much better than the F250 TTB setup.
You will want to grab the track bar and bracket, sway bar and brackets/links, and make sure you grab the driver's side spring plate, it is cast iron, is positioned on the bottom of the stack of parts (shock mount, spring, axle then the plate, all held together by the u bolts). These plates are $150-175 if you don't have one, and getting harder to find.
