Plowing with my f250

Hey guys,
If I were to plow with my truck would it be wise to upgrade the coils to the heavier ones made for plowing? If so, will they make my truck sit higher or are they just stiffer?

Thanks!

i believe just stiffer. from the factory it called the heavy service front suspension or something. but i got mine on from the factory with the plow package and it still sits terribly unlevel, but yeah i would upgrade because when you lift the plow your plow mount will be really close to the ground and bottom out all the time if you dont.
