What is all the talk about x springs out of F-550's used on F-250 and 350's?

I've got a 250 4x4 with a V-10 and the snowplow package, so I've got the x springs. The plow setup is approx. 1000 lbs, BTW. I had to buy the snowplow package, since I plow with my truck. That being said, the truck sits level and I like it that way. The SDs that I see without the x springs have a bit of a rake towards the front. After seeing this, I'd buy the plow package just so the truck sat level. YMMV SamC

I'll add if your looking for a lift I wouldn't do the x spring change. The longer the truck the less lift. For another $150-$200 you can get a real lift and proven results.

For my trouble I got maybe 1" of lift. I got more lift (1.25") from cutting the old springs down to about 16" and sliding them underneath the springs. No sag with these.
