Default questions on lifting my truck

ok so heres the deal i want my truck to sit a little higher in front but dont want to pay out of the butt to get it. top gun customz has leveling kits for my truck and then longer shock kits to go with. but my question is the one i want is the 3inch spacer for the front but with that much height gain will the front sit higer than the back then. my truck has the stock block kit in the back and for some reason 5 total leafs in the back and its a 2001 dodge 1500 5.9 any advice for me.

I have a 2" Daystar leveling kit in the front of my "01 1500 Off-Road . It sits level , if not even a little bit higher than the rear , not much . I would think with a 3" your definitely gonna sit higher in the front .

i have a 98 and did the 3 inch lift on the front. i jacked the front up a good bit higher than the back. i put what was suppose to be a 1.5 inch add-a-leaf on the back, ended up being a .5 inch leaf. im going to replace my 3 inch block with a 4 inch block, if i cant find a 4.5. i would tell u to go with the 3 inch spacer and a 4 or 4.5 block, depending on how level you want it. also, if you dont want to swap the shocks or dont have the funds right now, 3 inches wont hurt it. i still have stock shocks on mine.
