dude, i told you before, only ford has them, plus if your using new springs they are 3" wide, gonna have to go custom. if ya want sometin that will move, run an f350 main leaf(not the desil spring) and an f150-350 long leaf from the rear pack(the one just under the main leaf) they ride nice, flex decent, and are cheep, otherwise its something you have to order

f350 main leaf, and out of an f150's rear leaf pack, the second leaf down, the leaf right under the main leaf. i took that leaf and bolted it to the f350 main, so i had a 2 leaf pack, it worked pretty good, rode decent, flexed allright

well before i had a 6" ttb lift, it lifted it at least an inch more, probably 2, but your starting with an f250, which is bigger stock so im not sure how much lift you will get, how are you running the shackle setup on your truck?
