Default Building a kit

Ive got a 97 1500 4x4 with the 5.2. I'm wanting to build my own lift for it because I have a couple things I'm willing to spend extra on that I can't seem to find in a retail kit..but I've got some questions.

1--will the leaf springs on a 2500 fit on a 1500? and if I swapped em would they add any lift, or are they the same length just different rates? I've got the 2.5" springs if that makes a difference.

2--anybody know a place to get adjustable control arms/track bars for a 2nd gen 1500? I can only seem to find em for 2nd gen 2500/3500s.

Thanks!

and in case anyone was curious, did some digging and found this website which has multiple options for control arms.
