???? why?? I have a 79 f150 w/ a 7-1/2 plow w/ no problems and I had the same plow on my 78 bronco w/out any issues, in fact w/ the plow raised the f/e only dropped on both of the trucks...an upgrade may not be necessary but if you coils are wiped out just replace w/ oem, otherwise when you aren't using the plow it is going to ride worse than a skateboard

"plenty of parts"...you ain't seen nuthin"..but I am getting rid of the surplus so I can manage what I want to keep...remember if you lift the front too much then you are going to have to lift the back to 'level' it out...you may want to consider air bags to supplement the f/e when you have the plow on and then you won't mess w/ the suspension you have now...just a thought,...
