Default Coil spring letters (ZEF) (ZTF) mean what?

I am changing out the snow plow prep package coil springs on my 2011 regular cab 2500 4x4 with 5.7 hemi. I don't use a snow plow and I want a softer ride. Dodge has several coil springs listed that will fit my truck but I don't know which ones are correct. I have researched some of the part numbers and found that they are used on the diesel as well as the hemi equipped trucks. That does not seem right. The diesel would surely require a stiffer coil spring. I think that the springs I need may be part number: 68050555AA (ZEF) (ZTF). All of the springs have 2 sets of letters that may indicate what spring rate they are. Does anybody know what these letters mean? I don't want coil springs that are stiff enough for the much heavier diesel engine, I want a softer ride. I love this truck but I'm tired of the rough ride it has! Any info helping me select the best coil springs for a softer smoother ride will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!!!

the 2009 Ram 1500 have
ZAMP left Front Spring
ZASP left rear spring
ZNMP right front spring
ZPSP right rear spring

all of them would be too light for a 2500 model

You could ask TufTruck about their Variable rate coil springs for the part time snow plower. I believe the part number is TTC-1216V. Maybe talk to a rep their and explain your concern?

I don't own a snow plow or want one. I want rid of these stiff coil springs. This thing will shake the fillings out of your teeth when you hit a pot hole. I just want to learn which OEM springs will give me the best ride. I may still consult TufTruck though.
Thanks!
