suspension upgrades?

Hello I have a 1994 F250 with the powerstroke diesel, I am going to redo the ball joints and have been looking around and pricing. I have found 2 weights for the lower joints a lighter weight and a heavier one. My truck says the lighter one but i am thinking about trying to see if the heavier one in because I just put a plow on. what do you guys think. put the heavier in or not. I'd like to upgrade with the heaviest parts that i can.

What are the weights you have found? Is this a 2wd or a 4x4 (I'm guessing 4x4 due to the plow, but one never knows)? Of course, you'll probably get lots of "swap in a Dana 60 front end" suggestions. Cheers!

Ok there are 2 different size ball joints ones for 3500lb axles, and the other is rated for a 4600 lb axle. They both say they will fit my truck. I'd like to put the heavier in to help with my plow but not sure if anything will be wrong doing that

Re: suspension upgrades?

Should be the 4,600 lb axle. Im pretty sure the Dana 50 and 60 use the same ball joints. Get greaseable ball joints though. Its easier to grease them once a month than to replace them.
