    I have a 2001 truck dual rear wheel mason dump an I would like to beef up fr springs before mounting plow. truck has slight rake to fr already. my stock number of leafs is 2. I also have a 2000 truck same as 01 but fr has 3 leafs, I got that one used and can only assume that previous owner modified it.
    anyway what are your thoughts on best way to improve fr springs for plowing.

    It raised the front up to make the truck sit level.
    It had better clearance in the front when loaded, than the 02 F350 PSD standard cab that my buddy uses (with the plow prep).
    The ride was a little stiffer, but what the h3ll it's a f350.

    I plan to add a leaf to my new 04 f350 crew cab Diesel this fall.
