    I am trying to find the correct shocks or spring/shock combination for my truck.
    It is a 2017 4x4 Ford F150, Supercab, long bed, 163 inch wheelbase, with Heavy Duty payload package, offroad package. We use it with a slide in camper and are very heavy loaded ( about 10% over GVWR / 7850 lbs ). The 4 leaf rear spring pack has been replaced with a 7 leaf pack. So in the rare occasions we drive without the camper it has been lifted in the back by the thickness of 3 leafs. The front has the original spring rated 633 lbs.
    According to my research so far the spring/shock combination for the front would offer about 2.5 inch lift, but the spring would be much softer ( 525 lbs. ? ). Do you offer a stronger spring for the same shock ( at least OEM strength ) ?. What is the advantage / disadvantage of a longer spring at the lowest shock setting vs. a precompressed original spring at the highest spring setting ?

    Thank you very much for your efforts
