OEM Replacement Leaf Spring 43-1261 FAQ with SD Truck Springs

Q: I want to replace my leaf springs but I dont know what leaf springs I have. Can you help me out?
A: Sure thing, In order to identify what leaf springs your vehicle uses you need to locate your spring code or SPR code. On Ford vehicles this number can be found on a sticker located on the driver door panel. The 43-1261 Rear Leaf Spring works on Ford F250/350s anywhere from 1999-2004.

Q: Does this come with the front leaf spring too?
A: Because of compatibility issues, Leaf Springs are sold individually due to the fact that springs are offered for both the front and the rear of many vehicles. This specific item offers one rear leaf spring for the 1999-2004 Ford F250,350 4wd with 4 leaves in the pack.

Q: How much weight can these springs handle?
A: The spring capacity for the 43-1261 front leaf spring is 3,000 lbs. This leaf spring also offers additional hanger/shackle kits and eye bolts if you need to replace the ones you have in the future

The quality was good but the height of the front and back were different. I ended up adding 2inches of lift to the back to level out the Excursion. I have extra weight in the front and less then normal in the back but still was not enough to level it. I like the overall height now but wish I didn't have to add a block to make it level. Possibly adding a spring would have helped but that was out of my knowledge.

The leaf springs squeaked real bad over every small bump the day after I installed them. So I was able to quiet it for the most part by putting some chain lube where the plastic circles are in between the leafs. Hopefully the noise doesn't return

Very satisfied. Had my mechanic do installation. No problems with install. Absolute correct parts. Cannot tell any difference in ride or performance from original equipment. Thanks for your help. Customer service was excellent.

Springs went in good, no issues. They arrived UPS and I assisted the driver in getting them off the truck, they're HEAVY. Had an issue with receiving the wrong U-Bolts, contacted support and they shipped the correct bolts quickly. Overall, good experience with SD Truck Springs.

Great option to replace my sagging and cracked stock spring set. 300k miles had taken its toll on my stock springs. Picked up about 1" of lift and much better load handling.

The springs are working out great but my concern is the hardware, specifically the u-bolts. They are showing a lot of rust. There was no clear instruction on if the u-bolts had to be coated in something. Please get back to me if I am still ok or not with the u-bolts I bought from you. Thank you.

Springs were strong. They rust way too fast though. i installed very easily and customer care are very supportive and diligent .I would suggest covering them in something else besides just paint

Excellent Product. Old leaf springs were shot. Truck now sits 3 inches higher and rides like new. Well worth the money. Customer support was great. Thank you.

Fit was fine I had 4+ contact overload springs on my 2003 F250 and in order to install the contact overload springs the pack had to be unbolted so spacer then contact spring could be installed. I don’t know if SD had an option for one already installed but that would have made the install much nicer and easier. One spring was missing the anti squeak pad on the ends but I have not noticed an issue as of now. If done again I would probably upgrade the rear to the 6+1 but I would recommend SD spring.

Arrived well palletized. The third party came up short on bolts, but SDTruckSprings made it right with upgraded shipping. I have to assume the springs are rated as described. Quality finish on springs.

The price was good and shipping went well. Install didn't go as well. The springs are held together by a bolt and nut in the middle. The bolt and nut are bigger than what is on the OEM springs so it won't fit. If you have a helper spring, there is a metal spacer that sits on top of the spring. The spacer has an indentation in the middle that falls over the bolt and nut from the spring. When I asked SDtrucksprings for help it took a while to get a response. The response was useless, they suggested to buy a different spacer (didn't even offer to pay for it). The offered spacer simply has a hole int he middle and it will fit but it won't have a pin sticking up to center the helper spring. Disappointed about the lack of a good solution for this. In the end I ended up cutting off the bolt that sticks out on top. SDtrucksprings did not offer this solution.

I used these springs on a 2005 Excursion 6.0, with the "B Mod". Vast improvement over stock handling. Less or almost no wallow and in a different category for towing a heavy travel trailer. Good springs. If the OEM Ford springs are any better, I will never know because these do the job for far less money. I have never installed leaf springs and putting them on was not very difficult for me to do.

Very good replacement springs for my f250, I replaced my springs with these springs when mine broke. They ride well and also even gave my truck a little lift also, would definitely recommend these if your springs are worn out.

ordered these for my 2003 F250 SD, Best price anywhere, fast shipping(4 days to my door), all hardware included. Exact item I needed to replace a broken spring, brought my truck back to normal ride height and weight capacity. I would recommend these leaf springs and to everyone.

I bought the Xcode fronts first and install them. I like the way I would not bottom out anymore but I had a sagging rear end so I bought these springs to help level out the truck. on the excursion I still have a little bit of sag to the rear it I should have gotten the larger blocks but I use the original blocks if I had to do it over again I would use different blocks or order longer springs

The leaf springs I order were exactly what I expected. The hardware kit was great. Should have remembered I needed u bolts long enough for the helper springs. Shipping was fast in my opinion. I would order from struck springs again.

Leaf springs were great, matched original well. Bushings were too tight for factory size bolts and nobody had right size so we just ran a 3/4" drill bit through it. Springs do come painted, but are already rusty after few months. Other than that I'm happy, price couldn't be beat!
