Steve, that may work with stock springs. With a diesel (which you don’t have) there is about 4K pounds + on the front axle. In your case snow plow springs ARE way overkill. On the other hand, I’ve got the opposite woe. Cummins power and about 275 pounds of winch, winch carrier, brush guard, and radiator saver. Plus the NV-5600, cast iron case 6-speed manual that weighs in at a boat anchor 360 pounds without bell housing. I’m happy to have 3″ lift pucks and snow plow springs up front plus aftermarket control arms.
I have a theory that if you have pliable, lower load limit coils up front you get less twisting of the frame when you get the axles all twisted up and a better ride.
Another route to take with the RAM front end is to go with the longer control arms that attach to the frame rails. Reports are that this change allows for a better, more supple ride out of the front end and much easier steering and braking.
