One question, amyone running the camper package on there F 250? Adds extra leafs in the front and extra in the rear with a overload spring as well. The rear has a stabilizer bar as well.Wondering how it handles with a heavy 5er.
In 2005, Ford changed from a solid front axle with leaf springs (on 4WD models) to coil springs which allows a lot more turning clearance. The 2WD models have had coil springs in the front since the Super Duty trucks were released in 1999.

I just added Firestone airbags to my F-250 diesel. At 20 psi I get 1.5" of squat and that puts the truck sitting level again. With the wd hitch adjusted better, the front end now sits at the unloaded height even when loaded. On a short test tow last weekend, it seems to tow better and the rear end bounce on bumps is gone. I think I finally have everything tweaked just right.

As far as the 250 vs 350 thing goes, I have wondered what the differences are. My neighbor and I have the exact same trucks, '15 Lariat crew cab diesel 4wd. Mine is a 250 with the 10k GVW option, and his is a 350. He has one extra spring on the rear leafs. The max towing stickers on the truck are exactly the same. His payload is very slightly more, and the rear is ever so slightly raised when unloaded where mine is level. I need to compare the max axle weights and see if there's a difference.

Check how large his block is in the rear. It's supposed to be 1" bigger in the f350 vs the f250.

Haha that little pink car has by far the most important cargo though by far!

It is a 250. 350s aren't as common and after everything I read I am fine w the 250 and the only diff being the sticker and the 1" larger block I'm confident we are fine. There is near no option missing on this. Original window sticker 62,800 its really loaded. Quite a diff driving experience from the 150. The 150is so quiet so smooth so plush of a ride. That's how it goes

We have the F150 EcoBoost Extended cab for every day driving and pulling our boat. When it comes time to pull a real load that is what our F250 Powerstroke is for. They each have their uses and I would not trade one for the other.
