I need suspension advice!! Offroad springs help

Hi, I have a 90' bronco with a 73' VW bug body on it. Don't ask. Anyway. The question is about the suspension. It has a 6" lift kit with bilstien 5100 shocks and Deaver springs in the front. With 5100 shocks + leafs in the rear. The question is since the bronco body weighed way more than the VW body, the springs aren't compressing at all. It's too light I think for the springs. I can't find a place to get advice on my pounds per inch for ideal springs. It feels like it will roll over on a slight hill because of the ultra stiff springs. What would a good place to get custom springs or find the right ppi rate for the new springs for me? Confusing question but basically how can I get springs that will flex so I don't roll it on a hill and it feels like I have suspension instead of the stiff ride it has now. Thanks

To answer your questions you will need to contact a coil spring manufacturer and explain your requirements and get advice . Someone similar to this ,


Never, never, never give up.
