Heavy duty lift coil springs

Does anyone have a good source for heavy duty lift coil springs (4 or 6 inch) for a 92-96 f150? I'm getting ready to do a solid axle swap on my 95 f150but Im afraid that regular lift coils wont support enough weight...especially since I have a heavy bumper and diesel engine up front. The 2.5" rough country lift coils I have now are just barely cutting it. I considered seeing if lift coils for a 05 or newer super duty (diesel) would work. Has anyone heard of trying this?

JD70AB,
I have a 96 that I converted to 4wd with ttb. I work at a dealership had spotted a set of 07 S/D diesel springs in the scrap metal pile (there is an SSM or TSB about squeaking I think) I Installed them without modification but found that they are very harsh. My truck is a stock 300 - 6 without A/C or added weight. - the upside is that they raised the front end about 2.5 - 3" but without drop brackets on my pivots and arms, I cant get the alignment even close. I'm currently looking for the gas versions of the same springs as they appear lighter although I'm not sure on the spring rate - the best case would be if those springs were attached to a complete axle so I could kiss the ttb goodbye.
