Default 2500 leaf spring blocks

Hey all I want to get a set of day star ride levelers for my 97 1500...But I was told that the front of my truck might be higher when I do this cause the rear springs could have sagged over time. My question is could i use a set of blocks from a 2500 Ram to replace the ones from my truck...Thanks for any advise in advance....

I would measure the truck height front and rear , subtract the difference and go with that thickness spacer .
