New plow, Need advice on front end

    I just purchased a MD75 SnowDogg plow for my F150 supercab shortbed XLT 5.4L. The plow installer said I had the smaller of the 3 front ends made by ford. I want to look into beefing it up and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. My truck currently dips a little in the front and didn't know if putting a small 2" lift package on it to even it out would be enough or if I just beef up the springs to make the front end a little heavier dutier. Or do I need to do both? Any help and guidance would be appreciated.

    What year F-150? It makes a difference. (Torsion bars vs. coils.)

    Generally speaking, you want to increase the spring rate though, not simply lift it.
