The leaf spring bushings have worn out on my stock springs on my 03 f250. So I have been looking to get new ones and saw the x code will level the truck out. I found them online but saw there's two numbers 43-818 which is a two leaf pack 43-818hd which is a three leaf pack. Which of these will I need to level the truck out? Also any suggestions on where to order from? Possibly a vendor on the site?

Thanks
Daniel

Yeah I thought about just doing the bushings. How much of a pain are they to do?saw someone say they burnt them out I guess just by burning the rubber. Others say say press. I have access to both just wasn't sure if it was worth the headache

I can hear it and also feel it in my floor boards and every now and again on the highway if I hit a bump the truck will get a little squirrelly. I put some jack stand under the frame and got the weight off the front end then used a pry bar to check the bushings. Had some play and looked real dry rotted.
