Does that sound right?
Not sure if you're shop is completely wrong, or if you're just relaying the information a little bit wrong....
If you're shop told you your truck has leaf springs they don't know shit all.... I don't know of any trucks that use leave springs anymore. Your truck has struts on the front which is a spring and shock assembly. I'm not sure how the Pro Comps work but the Bilstein 5100's replace the shock part and have an adjustable c-clip to change where the spring retainer is which in turn changes the ride height of the truck (leveling it). That would be the ideal way for you to level your truck. Then if you want you can add the Bilsteins (or Pro Comp) shocks to the back as well for better ride quality.
