    Hi I have a 1994 ford f150 4x4 extended cab short box with a fisher 7.5 Minuit mount plow. If seams like i need to get some heavy duty coil springs. I know this truck is not built for plowing I'm only doing my driveway and my parents, That live about 20 miles away. Any help on that kind to get i have the 3275 lb gawr front Axel I was looking at some from auto-zone part # fcs824v as I work their and get a discount. Would the HD ones make a difference as theirs are also reg duty ones. I don't want to wast money and put them in if they wont help. Any input will be appreciated
    Also could i put f250 springs in it

    the heavy duty one's would be a plus typicaly have a cc in the number instead of cs for standard .:salute:

    Ok so what would you recommend I would rather spend more and get something that will work. My uncle got some for his f150 with a plow when he started the tiers were like this / \ (looking from the front) and with the new ones (I think they were just longer and not stronger) it looked like this \ / (front view)

    i would check with a spring shop first for their opinion ,you could always go with standard coils and air bag's ,it has been awhile since i sold them but it seems to me their was another number between thr 820's and 824's just a little bit lighter ,i used to sell cargo coils ,they would keep you at stock height but handel more weight capacity .their was a tighter band of coils at the top of the stack .thay also timbrens for that truck also .

    sorry for asking so many questions but i want to make sure I'm right. so f250 springs wont work. and what is the difference between the fcs844 and the cc844 and someone seed to go with cc822 over the cc824 are the cc824's to stiff? and would the cc844 the stiffest?

    stiff

    i think the 824's will be to stiff and with out someone to be able to compare the spring spec's on the 844's and the 822's better make shure they will fit first and are not to stiff .:salute:
