If you decide with leveling kit I would recommend Readylift, they offer very complete packages.

I added the F550 springs to my f350srw about a year after I got it. It didnt lift the front much, ~.5" but it did hlep hold the weight of my snow plow better. Off the top of my head I believe the 7k lb springs from the 550 are the AA code springs. I paid 140 for the pair at a dealer. For comparison, my truck came stock with the 6k front end (had plow package & camper package).

Mine also came with the plow/camper package and I installed a Ranch Hand guard on front. Did not phase it.

I second this approach. Exactly what I did. And yes, the spring code is 5c3z-5310-AA
