Today's Super Duties, there isn't even a leaf spring difference. You can get the camper package on the F250 which gets you the overload spring, just like the F350.

Same everything else (brakes, differentials, axles, etc.). The F359 has the taller blocks though.

The F250 is handicapped at 10,000 GVWR to keep it a "class 2" truck. Even though it is the same as an F350.

Set a 3200lbs pin weight on F250 Camper Special and then set it on a F350 then come back and tell there isn't a difference. I did just that!!

I'm talking SRW here. Should have specified. Big difference between SRW and DRW.

Every F350 SRW and F250 I have looked at (new ones) on dealer lots, and that is many, have the same leaf springs. The only exception is the overload spring, which comes with the camper package on the F250.

The F350 does have taller blocks, which provides a couple extra inches of travel.

This is all well documented. Just do some searching. You do have to evaluate newer ones though. They have changed over the years.

Not trying to be argumentative, just answering questions.
