If you want something better then cutting off you wheel speed sensors riffraff sells a cool adaptor that you can also add grease to your unit bearings with.

That's actually what I was going to get for my hubs but never got around to it. I agree​, that's cleaner and serves a purpose better than cutting the sensor wires.

The ad says it's only for 99-04, but I know you can swap the 99-04 sensor into the 05+ hubs so I don't see why you couldn't use it on the 05 axle. Again I was going to try it but never got around to buying some.

How tall are these swapped trucks sitting with stock coils compared to stock leaf springs or leveling kit leafs?

Mine with 5200lb coils, B code rear springs, and velvet ride shackles had a slight rake to it with stock 2" F250 rear blocks. The front was 1.5" lower than the rear. So basically 2" lower than the factory obs F350.

With 4800lb coils, I probably could have gone with no rear block and been dead level measurement wise.

If I understood right, the OBS sits lower after swapping in super duty suspension

Depends on the coils you use. Just the same as when the different coil ratings are used in the SD.

Anyone have a list of factory bolt sizes and locations. I got a box of factory bolts and trying to figure out what goes where.

[QUOTE=markfuga;1419511]My "Do Not Weld To The Frame" comment is a matter of practice that I live by with all mods I do. Everything should be bolt-on and only weld when there is no other way to make the modifications. Welding creates many stresses in the frame along with "risers" that can develop into cracks over time. Welding on a frame (especially by novice/amature) is just a bad idea. It's not a matter of "will the weld hold the piece on" but rather what distortion and stresses have been created by the welding.



I'm surprised by the number of people looking for the bracket, is there not a vendor/sponsor supplied option out there? I thought there was. I'm not a sponsor so I've been hesitant to reply with offers to make the brackets but if there's that much interest and no one is making them then send me a PM. I'm in the process of making several now for a couple guys so I can easily increase the count.[/QUOT

Are you still making trac bar brackets to sell? I'm interested in one if you are
