Gas VS diesel front 4x4 leaf springs

Is there a difference between the front leaf springs on a 99 and up Super Duty? And is there a difference between the 99 and up F 350 and 250 front spring packs? I need a set for a 99 F350 but they are under a gas engine and I do not know if it is a 2 or 350.

Gas engines are lighter than diesel. So YES there is a difference. And there is a load difference between F-250 and F-350.

The weight difference between the two engines is what concerned me. I know on 2 wheel drive truck the coil springs are different for the diesel trucks. However, why would the front Springs be different between a F350 and a F250 both with a diesel? I know the rear springs are different comma I am just wondering why the front would be different.
