F450 Springs will they fit?

I have a set of 450 springs available for my taking if I want them. Will they fit my f250 when I do the D60 swap? I know the ride would be rough but was just curious. This would be front and rear springs.

Re: F450 Springs will they fit?

If by F450 you mean F-superduty. Then yes. They will bolt in but terriable ride.

But if you mean F450 from 99-04 then no. you need to relocate the front spring hanger w a RSK or alike. and still ride like crap

The rear from a 99+ work on the rear of your 250 but not the front without some work. Honestly unless it's a plow truck & needs the spring, look around for a set of OBS 350 springs.

I have 350 springs but these have such a nicer arch I am thinkin about at least trying them with removing a couple leafs.

I did do this... I put my stock rear springs from an 02 F-250 and put them on a 92 4x2. same length. used them with a over load shim and a over load spring.

Not removing leafs from the 350 rather the F-superduty spring pack. There were like 6 leafs.

Both. the rear springs have 5 or 6 leafs plus a bolted on over load spring pack with 3 leafs and then the front has quite a few, 6 may have been an over statement but there were at least 4.
