These spring brackets are designed to mount onto 1967-1979 Ford F250 2wd trucks and allow you to install 2017+ Super Duty leaf springs. Pictures with measurements are included to verify fitment. Please measure your truck before ordering.
These work well with either OEM axles or 2005+ SD axles.2017 Super Duty leaf springs are a massive 65" eyelet to eyelet. The ride quality with these springs are just amazing. Very smooth and soft, with excellent weight handling.These brackets are often used to help lift the truck when going from 2wd to 4wd. As pictured on the tan truck, they are used with a FR173S Skyjacker 3" lift spring and without any block. FR173S is a great all around spring and can be used for most any 4wd conversion application. FR175S has a little more lift, and FR177S has a lot of lift.Here is the neat thing about these spring brackets: Every bracket uses at least one factory drilled frame hole! You don't even need a tape measure to mount these in. No worries or headache aligning it all. You do need to drill a grand total of eight 7/16" holes in your frame and out of a total of 16 bolt holes to mount these. The brackets work as a template for the drilling location- no guess work.Axle Perches:
All 37.5" wide rear frame applications can use these brackets along with modern super duty 10.5 sterling axles with no cutting or welding of perches
All 34" wide rear frames (crew cabs, most F350s, all 1972 and older F250s) require cutting and welding of perches to move them closer together.
This listing includes all four brackets, enough to swap out both of your rear springs for super duty springs. 16 new 7/16" grade 8 bolts and all metal lock nuts are included!
1967-72 F250 Applications:
These models have a small rear frame rail and get slightly different rear brackets. They also get two support pieces to reinforce the frame rails and addtional hardware.You will need to separately purchase these things:-Rear 2017+ Super Duty leaf springs-Leaf Spring plate- the 2017 super duty trucks have the U bolt pointed downward but you can mount U bolts in the traditional upward fashion with a basic 3/8" thick steel plate that I sell-Leaf Spring Shackles for rear of leaf spring-U Bolts- upgrade to 5/8"! (see Superlift 11244 for example, but the length depends on your lift blocks)
