    I need to level out the front of my truck because the original coils are sagging a bit and i want to get it leveled out before i install and set up my new plow.

    I was going to get a rough country 1.5" kit that replaces my springs, but i am worried about using aftermarket springs and carrying the weight of a plow.

    i recently sold a plow to a guy that had a 2006 f350 and instead of getting an aftermarket kit he bought some f550 springs and added a coil spacer.

    which would be the best way to level out my front end? would the f550 springs alone raise it up a little bit?

    the 550 are rated for 7K, I put them on my 05 back in the day. It gave me about a 3/4 inch rise and held the plow much better.

    I should also say that leveled out the 250, it had the 2inch blocks. Yours should have the 4 inch blocks in the rear..

    Springs are cheap, can't it was much worst. May want to check with ford on price too. In 05, under a hundred.

    I got a 2 inch mini spring pack for my 7.3 f250 And also the 4 inch block. I can't remember what brand it is now but you can find them on ebay for like 1-2 hundred. It made a big difference and it handles a 9 foot v no problem. The ride quality didn't seem to change much either
