Default coil spring codes...?

Does anyone have knowledge of the coil spring codes for the TTB ranger/explorer...?

I have a broken coil spring and just got some out of the junk yard. The springs I got are coded AF. There must be different weights/loads/spring rates.

I tried google and FORD but came up with nothing. maybe if there is enough info we can stickie it

I don't know but when I needed new leaf springs, I googled "Ford+Ranger+Leaf+Springs" and was able to get some good info without too much crap. Try these sites and see if they give you any leads:

i was just wondering because I wanted a heavier spring for the plow. I figured springs from the v8 exploder would be a little more stout.
