2" Safari Gard Lift Springs rate, Opinions?

I have a set of Safari Gard 2" lift progressive coil springs, that I am putting on a 88 D90 Tdi. Two different spring rates, 200 lbs and 250 lbs. They were on a RRC and the 200 were up front and 250 rear. I will be running a winch, winch bumper, skid up front along with the weight on a 200tdi. Out back I will have a spare 265/75, highlift, and a fuel can on a tire carrier.

Looking for opinions. Should I stick with 200 lbs front and 250 rear. I have seen where some run HD springs front and MD rear with these mods, if this is the case maybe I should go 250 front and 200 rear

These are going in for now, looks like I will stick with 200 front and 250 rear based on some rate comparisons. If I can't get them to work for me I will entertain a trade.
