An easy way to get close on your weight per axle, is to go to your local truck scales and park with each axle on a separate section of the scale. Once you have the weight (of your rear axle in this case), you can talk to the spring folks about which to use. You should also be armed with your suspension travel measurements. A softer spring may be appropriate, but too soft and you might be bottoming out.
