    A few years back I ordered some Firestone airbags and screwed up the part #.

    Now, I'm wondering if I can make them work on an F350 SD. They are listed for a 450\550 C&C.

    Is there a difference between the frames of a F350 and F450\550? I'll take a look when they're both here, but I can't imagine it is.

    Then again, we all know how engineers like to screw with everybody.

    Cab and Chassis trucks have a flat frame, and are also narrower.

    The Pickup will have a hump in the frame, and also wider.

    So, they ARE different, yet you may be able to make it work.

    That's what I'm thinking, since we're talking the front frame rails,not the rear.

    Oh, talking front and not rear?

    Yeah, I don't think you'd have a problem.

    Front frames are the same from 99-07 f250-550, only difference I'm aware of is the coil spring conversion around 03?, still same frame though
