Front spring pad width on '99-'04 4x4 Super Duty?

I've been searching in Ford under "pad", and looked through the D60 bible, but have not found anything yet. Pissin' me off!

I just wanna know what the gawldamn front spring pad width (perch to perch) on a '99-'04 4x4 Super Duty is! Anybody know FOR SURE? If I knew where one was, I'd go measure the sumbitch myself. Thanks in advance.

Been a while since I threw a tape on it, but I want to say 37.5.

Awesome. Well, sort of awesome. Thanks for the replies. I knew there was going to be one fart smucker to say three fucking inches. Just sad to see it was you Ranger!


Was just thinking it would be better to put a 87-91 KPHP 60 under a SD/Excursion, but those are ~36" (maybe 36.5"). Not like the springs would hard to move that much inboard to meet up with the axle. Of course, a matching rear would be incorporated as well. Maybe if I ever get that far down that road I'll just swap on Deadenbear C's and knuckles and such....

The axle tubes are 3-1/2" on the SD housing, be sure to order the -4 inner C's.

Yeah. When I order parts for one-off stuff like that I always call and make sure it's all gonna work together.

Well I measured and measured and measured again, factory spring width is 37 3/4 inches exactly from pin center to pin center. I measured so many times cuz I needed it to be 36 for the kit I used on my sas. my axle is from an 03 f-350 and I am 100% sure its 37 3/4 inches.

oh and there is only one spring pad you can move. driver side its casted into the housing. I filled it in on the driverside and drilled it to where I needed it. also had to shave the side of the housing in order for u bolts to be straight. The passenger pad was easy, its just welded on.
