Compensating for additional front end weight

I have a ‘19 Big Horn 1500 with the off road package. I remember reading somewhere that the 1 inch factory lift is achieved by a longer strut/coil assembly. I’ll be adding 250+ pounds with a steel bumper and winch. I’d like to compensate for the added weight with a heavier duty front spring, something like this:

Although I can only seem to find springs that would be a direct replacement for the non off-road models. All of the adjustable coil/strut combos like the Billsteins and what not obviously have the ability to lift the front end, but don’t increase the load capacity. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
