you will get more lift from a lift coming off of a 2500 and putting it on a 1500. not eveything swaps over either, i dont know the exact specs. theres many ways to lift a truck for pretty cheap, you can even get stock coils from a 2500 or 3500 to lift a half ton, you'll just a have a fairly stiff ride. do a little googling and im sure you can find a good answer.

the 3/4 ton lift is goin 2 b a stiffer ride 4 u. theres not much diff btween ur truck and the 3/4 but the lift should work 4 u. the only diff i no of is that the 3/4 rear springs came in either 2.5in or 3 in wide. but its goin 2 b a lot of work cuz ur goin 2 either have 2 drop ur t-case bracket down or clock ur t-case down so that u dont bind the front drive shaft 2 much. but there r coil spring spacers that u can put in the front so that u can run 33s no prob, and thos kits arent 2 much. depending on the company. but if i was u i would buy the lift and than buy blocks 4 the rear than turn around and sell the lift 4 a higher price and buy the lift u want after sellin the lift.
