I think the very bottom leaf is different.....looking at my bronco then my f150. Other than that theyre all the same.

im not sure if the bronco has an overload spring, the f150 does for sure

both my bronco and F150 (s/c, s/b) are 1990 5 speeds. They both have 4 leafs in the pack but the bottom one on the F150 is ~1/8" thicker than the rest of the leafs in the pack where as the bko one is the same thickness as the other 3.

My F350 has 5, the bottom one being a real fatty....my guess is 7 leafs will be quite stiff with an empty box. Gonna give you some more hieght also, from the added stiffness and the extra thickness of the pack.
