    Both long box and short box have a stanard 4400lb GAWR front axle

    long box has 4800lb springs while the shortbox only has 4400lb springs

    Both run the Dana 60 which is rated at 6000lbs,

    Granted that truck has coils for front springs, but those front axle weights seem very light compared to the leaf spring front sprung SD trucks. I mean at 4400# that is in the ball park of 1/2 ton weight ratings.

    I have a set of snow plow prep coil springs. They were taken off of a '07 F250 with less than 500 miles on them. They are rated at 6000 lbs. I'll be happy to sell and ship them to you.

    Just my .02¢

    Dont waste your money on 4800lb springs....I have 5600lb springs and I run a 8.5 Fisher Extreme V and it sags a little. I am looking into 6000lb springs for next year already, I'm hoping I dont have to get shock extentions or anything else but the springs. But imo, just go with the 6000lb springs and there is no question that it will handle a plow. If it has A/C the it already has the heavy duty altenator so your good there.

    Second the opinion of getting the 6k springs. If they are still the "X" code springs that is what you want.

    Code X is for the snow plow prep leaf springs, rated for 5200 lbs.

    Code C is for the snow plow prep coil springs, rated for 6000 lbs.

    I don't know the codes and weights for the coil spring front ends. But the X-code leafs are #6000 and came with the snow plow prep pkg. W code leafs are #5600, V code are #5200, and U codes are #4800.

    I did a little looking a found this info on coil spring upgrades, But I am not positive on the part numbers due to a non confirmed source. I also realize the part numbers do not match the numbers posted in the next post below, which I feel is a better source.
    Part # 5C3Z-5310-AA is for the 7000# coil springs found in the long wheelbase 550's with the diesel. These will obviously ride quite stiff but will not sag with a big plow or whatever.
    Part # 5C34-5310-BA is for 6500lb front coils.
    Part# 5C3Z-5310-CA is for 6000lb front coils.
    The more I read up on the coil suspensions the more complicated it gets. There are a LOT of different coils depending on (but not limited to) W.B., cab, 4x4/4x2, engine, payload options, etc.

    Here are the 08 Ford front coil codes for F250-F550 and and their respective part numbers, this is from the 08 workshop manual . I can't find any spring weights associated with them, nor do I know if they are for 4x4, 4x2, what engine, or what cab. As I understand it a #6000 spring on a 4x2 5.4L RC truck is not the same part as a #6000 spring for a 4x4 CC 6.4psd. Boy is this a mess.
    Front Springs
    AA — 5C34-5310-AAB
    BB — 5C34-5310-ABB
    CC — 5C34-5310-ACB (I saw a reference that this is a #6000 spring, but nothing for certain)
    DD — 5C34-5310-ADB (I saw a reference that this is a #5600 spring, but nothing for certain)
    EE — 7C34-5310-EC
    FF — 7C34-5310-FC
    GG — 7C34-5310-GC
    HH — 7C34-5310-HC
    II — 7C34-5310-RC
    JJ — 7C34-5310-JC
    KK — 7C34-5310-KC
    TT — 5C34-5310-AEB (I saw a reference that this is a #5200 spring, but nothing for certain)
    VV — 5C34-5310-AFB
    WW — 5C34-5310-AGB
    XX — 5C34-5310-AHB
    YY — 5C34-5310-VC
    ZZ — 5C34-5310-WC
    22 — 7C34-5310-XC

    All I can say is I am glad I do not have coil springs.

    Ggg6 reminded me of something.....for those of you with gas motors and with trucks that are 2004 or older, the code X leaf springs are rated at 6000 lbs. If you have a diesel, your front GAWR is 5200 lbs.
