Best Leveling Coils for a 6.7L With a Plow???

Looking to level my 2012 F350, want to do 2" or 2.5". I run a Western 8.5 V-plow in the winter. Anybody know what coils have the highest weight rating? I'm gonna order new shocks and trac bar, just a little confused on coils.

Are progressive rate shocks like Icons or Carlis even the right ones to put on a plow truck? Or do I need to find a regular spring with a lift?

Thanks for the help fellas

What if you got the stock plow springs and added a spacer for the lift?

I have the plow prep package. I really didn't want to do a spacer though.

Get Ford 7,000lb coils. They are designed for a F550. They drop straight in. Cost about $90 each from Ford. Do a search on this site and you will find several threads about this. I have them on my 06. Part number is 5c3z-5310-AA

Reading through that thread it says that they only provide 3/4" of lift over stock. Looking for the 1 1/2-2" lift to truly level the front.
