Superduty Springs ?

What is the benefit of running Newer 99on Superduty front leaf springs on a OBS F250? Ive tried searching but no luck.

they are stiffer and taller due to the increased weight of the newer superdutys probably would give u 2 or 3 in. of lift and more load capacity

In my opinion its not worth it because the super duty springs are longer than the OBS. If you want a better ride I would do the Reverse Shackle Kit on the front and put a new block in the rear. The kit will also give you about a 3-4 inch lift depending on what brand you go with. There are two people making them and I believe they are sky manufacturing and there is someone else but I just went blank and can't remember them. I want to say it costs like 300 for the kit then you just have to buy a block and U-bolts.
