Where can i can stiffer front springs?????

Does anyone know where and if i can even get stiffer front coil springs for my 2002 f350???? Its lowered using djm's 3&5 kit but front is kinda soft so when i hit dips on highway it rubs and if i push down on front bumper truck moves up and down pretty freely... I know a stiffer spring will give me a stiff ride but i dont mind i just need a firm stiff front end, anyone know where i can find something?????



2002 f350, 08-10 conversion, djm 3&5, 24in american force evo's, toyo 285/40-24's, custom silver met, 6.7 scorpion swap with a few mods 😁

I am just thinking a different shock may dampen the ride more and keep the nose from diving so quickly

May not be a good idea but I will throw it out for conversation. What about running air bags on the front? I would think this wont change the ride but when it starts compressing, you will get more stiffness.

Deaver is good but you have a different set up they will be a little hard to increase spring rate on an unknown coil IMHO

the airbag insert for the coil also crossed my mind

Also consider that going that much stiffer and short sidewall tires, is gonna play hell on hub bearings and ball joints.
