Front end sag

Guys I have a 2001 PSD and the drivers side sags like a b****. I found a guy on craigslist that has a set he pulled off his PSD after less than a year to install lift kit. Have been sitting unsprung for 5 yrs. wants $100. He says they are W code springs and my id sticker in the door jamb says UA for springs which I understand to be U code front springs. He says the W is the way to go for my big bad diesel motor. Any thoughts? How much work is involved in swapping these out?

Thanks for any info!
Dave

T = 4,400
U = 4,800
V = 5,200
W = 5,600
X = 6,000 (SnowPlow pkg only on F-350)

I just bought some X-Codes that I'm hoping to have on by the end of the month... need a couple tools first. Minecurrently has the U codes, they sag really bad.

Thanks ToMang07,
Are these rates per pair? The shop I talked to quoted me per spring like 2030# and 2630# for "the most popular" two choices...
Oh and let me know how the install goes for you. Curious to see if my limited skills are man enough... lol

Yeah. I found a link to a junkyard (Thanks to Buffalo444) which found the X-codes for me, I called, they sold them to me for $75 each. Just picked the mup yesterday, I cant wait to put them on. Let me see if I can find the link...

The Door sticker has the Front end GWR, it also has the letter code on the bottom of the sticker.
