I never had any luck with casting numbers. They are like production numbers which dont mean much in the ford world

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known

They are just casting production numbers, cant really go by them.

I am sure if I go out in the garage and get the casting numbers off my 4 B codes, they will be different again

They are all 5 leaf springs, unless you are getting a cab-n-chassis spring

Can you tell physically by leaf thickness and arch?

Re: Super Duty spring identification OBSWIZ? DIesel Brad?

Nope. they just have different rates.

It is kinda funny going by the aftermarket. the X code spring they list as " Ford X Code spring. It is the heaviest of the factory springs offered for front of the F250 and F350." rated at 2630lbs and 1 5/16"
is thinner than the 2030lb spring which is 1 13/16"

Re: Super Duty spring identification OBSWIZ? DIesel Brad?

I've seen nothing but inconsistent results using after market so called Ford springs...IMO sepend the few $ more and get Ford springs from a Ford dealer.

True X codes are 3000lbs ea.
