Default Diesel springs

I wa looking at putting diesel springs in the front of my 99 1500 and was wondering how much lift that would give me. I am also wondering if I get the back blocks from the same truck if that woul level it back out or would I need aal also. I also have a leveling kit I haven't put on yet and don't know if I need to do that also or would that be too much lift for stock controll arms. Any help would be appreciated.

2500 springs (if they'll even fit) would make a 1500 ride like a brick. It would be cheaper to get some 2" square stock and weld your axle to the frame...

The deiesl springs will fit gives a couple inches lift. The rear block will not as it is 3" wide and 1500 are 2 1/2.

My first thought is that your truck will have HORRIBLE front compliance and will pop a kidney! Those springs are designed to hold up a engine that is about 1000lbs. plus the heavier suspension and such. I would not do that.

i think the springs you are considering will kill your end components. if you are looking for lift, try some spacers.
