    ID go a touch on the soft side, but that depends on if you tow, or how firm you prefer your ride.. Here in MN when the roads get frost they get bumpy, and make for a pretty wild ride but iv found that to soft and your rear will bounce all over the road, hence my recomendation for a touch on the soft side but still firm enough to keep axle wrap out of the equation when you drop the hammer.
