Has anyone rearched the front springs on a F-250 or 350 to level the ride height of the truck? If so, how is the ride? Cost?

Had my 97 '250 (back then superduty meant the F-450) done a couple years ago. The '250s are more prone to sag than the '350s. Might be the reverse arch they use, of maybe the TTB twists the springs more. Also added a leaf to try to keep springs from sagging again.

The diesel trucks tend to be especially prone to front spring sag, as the engine weighs a few hundred pounds more, and I don't think this was ever accounted for in the suspension design....A VERY frequent topic at:

Buy new springs or a spring relocation kit, re-arching the stock 2 leaf front springs is not worth it.
