Which SuperCoil Springs?

I want to replace my 1997 PSD 2wd front coil springs and have 2 options and need advice for which to choose. Either 3935lbs capacity or 5000lbs capacity? The first will give me a 1.5" rise while second will give 1 and 5/8" rise towards leveling the rig -so that is a wash. Which would you choose and why?

well, being a 2wd , i guess you dont plow, so why need the extra capacity up front, the ride will suffer with the high spring rate. go lower rate, and get a bilstein HD shock.
