To me the OEM springs and shocks are just enough for what they have to do, hold a stock vehicle up.
IMHO… you need heavier spring and shock to handle the extra weight of the plow and frame work.
See if there is a variable rate coil spring to fit your needs and extra weight.

I know when you add an HD Front bumper and winch the front coils start to **** after a while so think on it, figure out the added weight and contact a spring company.
Also get their suggestion on the correct shocks to use with their springs.
