springs and winch

I have a 97 with 150k 2.5l I put a winch and bumper on now the frontend sags a little. Are the 6 cyl springs stiffer if I got some of them off ebay would that help with the sag and are rubi springs better than sport springs?

How much is it sagging? Might be cheaper to throw in some coil springs spacers to fill in the delta.

The 6 cylinder springs are stiffer.Just add 3/4-1" spacers up front for $40.
