New '02 oem leaf ?'s

I have an '02 f350 srw. I just noticed yesterday I have a broken leaf so i need to replace that side. doing that i might as well do the other side as well. Ive bought lift springs for a bunch of broncos and f150's but with my 350 im not sure what spring pack i had or how to find out. Also maybe i should upgrade my springs?

my truck sometimes plays as dd, but is mainly used to haul my 5'er as i am on the road for work.

My questions are: What leafs do i have? where should i buy replacements? should i buy something other than stock? Should i maybe post an add in the for sale section?

Thanks
Vance

The spring code is on the door sticker. You'll see like vb for example. iirc the first is the front and second letter is rear. If it's a front spring maybe upgrade to x code springs if you don't already have those.

sorry i guess i didnt specify, it is the rear. And my door sticker is pretty wore off but ill see what i can see. What is the advantage of the x in the front? and what should i get for the rear, and where should i buy them?

Sorry for the stupid questions:/

Well ive done a little research and it looks like the only to oem options i have are a 6+1 and 4+1 packs. Im assuming the "+1" is the overload spring right? I gotta check whats under the truck now, thall help me decide. I currently dont have bags, but plan to get those soon so im not sure now if i should get the 4+1 with bags or the 6+1 and still get bags but not need them as much

opinions? Also where would you all get them

thanks

The x springs are heavier duty and come with the plow package. It'll ride a little stiffer but get you about an extra 2 inches of clearance. As for the rears and where to get them sorry but I'm no help.
