96 Explorer rear springs in F1?

Hi guys, my nephew just told me he has a 96 rear end with posi. He works at a metal recycling center and can get this stuff cheap. Looking to buy it for my Ford F47 (Canadian F1). Question is, should I get the leaf springs with it? Can they be used on the F47? Need to know soon because they'll be cutting it off the car pretty soon. I'm thinking if they fit it would be a lot better to have 15 year old leafs than 60 year old leafs. Thanks!

I would think that the Explorer springs would be wider.....You will likely end up moving the axle perches anyways, so it would be easier to use the original springs I would think.....However, I would get them anyways and compare measurements....You could always sell them later if not needed.

OK, thanks Poncho. Not sure how easy it would be to sell them. Not much of a market for them I think......John
