Hey everybody, new member here. I tried searching but it just tells me nothing pops up. My understanding is that the Tremor suspension is an entirely separate suspension from normal F-250/350s. Everything I've read states no differences between the two levels. Aside from numbers on paper as far as payload, is there actually any difference in an F-250 Tremor and an F-350 Tremor when both equipped the same? Is the F-350 any rougher of a ride? I know the difference in GVWR could affect registration costs, but typically an F-350 would have a higher re-sale value and the minor difference between the cost of both would make it a better investment to go with the F-350.

I don't know about the suspension vs other Fords. Its taller by 2" give or take with special shocks. I don't know if the shocks are any different between the 250 and 350.

I have the F350 6.7. It rides better than my old 2015 Chevy 3500 HD Duramax and that truck rode great! It has more power, more towing and more tech. Pretty much better in everything even fuel economy thanks to the 10 speed.

I often second guess my decision to get the 350 over the 250. When I had the Chevy it was a no brainer because I needed the towing capacity. With the Ford, I could probably got away with the 250. The cost between the 250 and 350 was not much, but the State of Wisconsin tags me pretty hard for the plate fees required on the F350.

Everything I see/read says its the 250 that is different. The 250 Tremor has a "350" leaf setup where a standard 250 does not? That is my limited understanding on it atleast.

If your going to get a 6.7 may as well go 350.

F250 and F350 Tremors have the same leaf/spring packs. I haven't been able to find a difference between the two other than that payload sticker.

The 350 rear differential has a slightly larger center section according to some of my research. Also a specific rated overload spring added to rear leaf pack.

Ford has a very specific sales guide that your salesman could email you it lists just about everything. When you are up and night and can't sleep you could study it and find more differences between the two. I don't think my discounted price for the 350 over the 250 was even $500.00. So at mid eighty thousand dollars I did not even think about going 250. Still I love the ride of my 350.

Here's a link to a good review and description between the 7.3 & the 6.7 engines/suspensions. It sounds like its more of a 7.3 vs 6.7 than a F -250 vs F -350 in some regards:
