Yeah. :)
I've been wanting to ask questions about coil springs for months.

My '91 F150 has E0TA-5310-DC (MA) 's -on both sides- and wondering how they compare with the other stock springs that will fit it?

1989 f150 would have either the CC818 coils or the 822 coils if it had V8 and a/c.

Alvin -- I would need more specs for your f150 eg.. 4x4, engine, cab

I have also been considering changing springs. My drivers rear is sagging, so the truck sits unleveled, plus the front is lower than the rear, like most trucks of this vintage.Local spring shop wants $250-300 to re-arch it to match the other side. I'm considering just buying both rear springs new, and replacing them myself.
I think I need to do what ever I'm going to do to the front, before I do anything to the rear. I read that just putting in new stock springs, should bring the front back up almost 2 inches, but then I read that someone had done it and been disappointed to just gain about 1/2 inch.
Looks like going with F350 springs would definitely raise the front a couple of inches, but probably stiffen the ride. I really don't want to make the ride any more harsh than it is. I replaced shocks, and went to alloy wheels with a MS tread. This lowered the unsprung weight, and improved the ride quite a bit, but it is still pretty harsh. Our streets are really bad because we freeze and thaw a couple of times a week all winter long. It just destroys the streets.
I don't plow, haul any serious weight, or pull a trailer. On rare occasion I will have 1000 lbs on it for a few miles. I'm not concerned about improving the hauling capacity. Just want it to sit more level, and not ride worse than it does now.
Buff is a 90 F150 regular cab, long bed, 4x4, air, 4.9 with the E4od. Truck weight is about 4600 lbs.
Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks Frank

FMR9, it's possible to re-arch your own springs.
Got a sledge hammer and a hunk of RR rail? :)

My 10 pound worked great on the thin leaves but when it came to the 5/8" thick overloads, they needed something heavier. Talking about my '75 F150 here.

Bought a used 16 pound head and put a handle in it and it worked good.
Since all that and telling the story around, I was given a 20 pound sledge. :)

I also put a clamp on the front end of each overload spring that acts a little like a torque bar. Which helped with the dirt-road-hill-climbing.

http://www.panix.com/~alvinj/file12/clamp.jpg (heavy duty fuel hose)
http://www.panix.com/~alvinj/file12/ zerks.jpg (front clamp)

Talk about making the pickup ride better, the grease sure as heck does a great job of doing that! :)

Ever oil your leaf springs? :)
Most don't. :/
My '91 has plastic pads on all the leaves except for the overloads.
When i re-arch those to match the rest of the spring pack, I'll add a front clamp and zerks to them only.

For ~30 years I used STP in a squirt can and it's one of the messiest jobs there is and doesn't last long enough to be hardly worth it, even with STP.

I'm the opposite of most in wanting my pickup to ride "nice". :/
But oiling them helps prevent them from breaking and makes the pickup ride and handle more like new.

Re-arching the overloads to match the rest of the spring-pack will help keep the pickup from "bucking" too.

Ok, A bit more coil info. 1980 to 96 All 4" diameter springs

All coils listed will work on any F100, 150, 250, and 350, with the exception of load capacity. eg: F100 springs in a F350 -- not wise or recommended.

The list below is the moog # followed by the same spring from other manufacturers.

MOOG Part # CC818 wire dia- .703"
--HUSKY# RV818

MOOG Part # CC820 wire dia- .718"
--HUSKY# RV820

MOOG Part # CC822 wire dia- .718"
--HUSKY# RV822
--ACDELCO# 45H1022
--SPICER# 5871022

MOOG Part # CC824 wire dia- .718"
--HUSKY# RV824
--ACDELCO# 45H1024
--SPICER# 5871024

MOOG Part # CC844 wire dia- .812"
--HUSKY# RV844

MOOG Part # CC844s wire dia- .812"
--ACDELCO# 45H1124
--SPICER# 5871124

Other spring options That I don't have complete specs on:

ACDELCO Part # 45H1026
SPICER Part # 5871026
--Wire Diameter=.72" Free Height=16.94" Load height=13"

ACDELCO Part # 45H1126
SPICER Part # 5871126
--Wire Diameter=.75" Free Height=19.54" Load height=13"

SPICER Part # 5871025
--Wire Diameter=.72" Free Height=16.38" Load height=13"

ACDELCO Part # 45H0209
SPICER Part # 5851209 for diesel
--Diameter=4.05" Wire Diameter=.875" Free Height=15.38" Load height=12"

Rustee -- You would not need new shocks for the 1" to 2" you would get from running the cc844 springs. I wouldn't run the cc844s (severe duty) as the extra srping rate and 200 pound aside extra capacity would kill you on anything but a glassy smooth road.

Rustee AND FMR
The spicer spring Part # 5871126 with slightly larger wire dia and 3" more free length then a standard spring may be the way to go BUT I don't know the load capacity and spring rate to say that 100%. And with out that info I can't even guess home much lift you would get.

Depends on how much lift your looking for. Yes 350/250 springs will work and gain you about 1" and a bit., great for leveling out the truck if you got a heavy front bumper or winch.
