Re: 1996 Axle Swap Leaf Spring brackets.
welcome to PSN.
my bet is when the did the axle swap, they left the 250 IFS
springs in it.
springs are very stiff to compensate for the lateral stress put on them by the twisting of the axles. when you put a solid axle in with 250 springs, you end up with a lousy ride.
you most likely need to switch the front springs for a set of F-350 springs.
owner of almost to many fords.
If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.
