Stock F250 Spring Block??

Does this look stock for the rear of a 97 F250?

The larger bottom block looks normal. However, the smaller block on top, I do not think those are there stock.

The very top one looks like a pinion shim, is it tapered front-to-back?

Re: Stock F250 Spring Block??

Re: Stock F250 Spring Block??

What is the softest riding spring I can put back there? I'm about to add Firestone bags for towing so I can afford softer springs. Where can I buy the stock F350 block? How tall is it?

Softest spring? Ive heard 2008+ f350 rear springs, but you have to relocate the spring hangers because they are longer.

F250 uses a 2 inch rear block, F350 uses a 4 inch rear block.
both use the same springs.
