Spring capacity question

I'm about to order my front and rear replacement springs. I'm shopping sdtrucksprings.com , and came across diffrent selections using an 00 F350. 1 is 3000lbs for the rear and 4400lbs. For the front I'm probably going with the 2630lb. I'm going to be most daily driving and randomly towing a car trailer and rv. Would the 4400lb to stiff? Also with a bull bar on the front will the front 2630lb springs be enough for a comfortable ride or should I go higher? Thanks for the help.

Do yourself a favor..get springs from ford, X codes for the front, do modded B codes for the rear.

Still haven't ordered my springs. Has anyone out there bought from sdtrucksprings.com ? I know caryt will say buy them from him or ford but I can't see paying twice as much if they will do the same thing. Please some one shed some light here. I've got the 43-818 at 2630lbs and the 43-1261 at 3000lbs in my shopping cart. Any help from a previous buyer at sd trucks would be great.

Cary, would you mind elaborating as to the reason behind these choices?

I did Cary's VB spring mod. I bought mine from a salvage yard for $200 total. The front spring I got had a leveling kit already on them. Total lift of 4" over where I started. The ride is 100x better. I'm not fighting it while driving anymore.
