    As far as the front springs, you already do have the heaviest springs they make on the front which would be the # 47s . if you still want to get heavier then that, try finding a spring replacement shop ( the ones that take care of leaf aprings for trucks) and see if they can help you. You can also try installing timberns,they act as a extended bump stops but when you lift up the plow instead of the springs compressing the susp hits the timberin and helps hold it up which put less pressure on the spring. I have them on my 95 2500 and they work great. hope I was some help.
