Need help sorting out front/rear leaf spring and a slight lift for welding rig

Hi, I'm new to Diesels and just recently bought a 2000 f250 thats rigged out for welding. My goal is to be welding pipeline in the near future and I'm trying to get everything squared away before I break out. I've noticed that the front and rear leaf springs are shot. I'd like to upgrade to x code springs up front and heavier springs in the rear. Been looking at's 43-1263HD rear springs. I need to lift her up 3-4 inches too. Any recommendations on leveling kits and blocks? I don't even know where to begin with u bolt sizes. I don't think 4" lifted springs would hold up to the abuse and weight of the truck out on the ROW or I'd just go that route. Ill be riding around with approx. 3000lbs on the flatbed. She's ugly, but I'm trying to church her up before her first day on the job. Any help or advice is definitely appreciated.
