got an 88 f250 with a 460, my front springs are bagged. springs from an f350 should bolt in, would the lift my front at all? just want to level the truck basically

I'd think that the only difference would be that the F350 springs would be a stiffer spring rate.

mainly askin if the are arched different. mine have a negative arch. stiffer springs would be better anyway, 460 is too heavy of a motor

the 350 springs have a pos arch so it may lift your front end a bit but get them used enough and it would be a level

they only had one set of springs for the f-250. weather you have a 5.0 or 7.3 as far as arch differance for the 350. l dont think so they may have an exta leaf in them.

good enough for me, f350 springs need the extra stiffness for motor and my springs are pretty warn. tires go like this / \

the springs are actually stiffer on the ttb as opposed to the live axle truck .

Put a leaf in from a back pack. Try the fat one at the bottom of the pack. Would be a little overkill, but would straighten out the pack.

If you still have the springs I might be interested in taking them off your hands.

ya I do, I test fit the 35"s and they cleared, flexe it out and trimmed a minor amount after doing ball joints, so I might not be using them

My 2 leaf F350 springs are good to 33".
I changed my front hangers as mine were pooched & new ones gave me 3/4" lift (from before)
I added a couple extra short leafs in the front so my 35's clear.

Best bet is a set of F450 front springs, gives you about 3" lift
