Cool will stock 2500 or 3500 suspension lift my 1500

Im curious if the stock OEM suspension found under a 2500 or 3500 will lift my 1500 2WD as a cheap lift set up but still OEM quality? Like are they at all the same suspension parts or are they different? i see online i can get a 3 inch suspension lift which is just 1 inch blocks for rear and 3 inch springs for front with new struts/shocks. if its really just springs and rear leafs or blocks will a taller trucks equipment work?

Most lifts are taller springs for the front and blocks for the rear.

A stock 2500 suspension will work if you can match up all the suspension mounting points and will get you about 1.5 to 1.75"

what do you mean match up the mounting points? aren't the suspension mounting locations the same on all 02 Rams? just taller leafs or springs or coils or srtuts? like if its a heavier duty truck. mu buddy has an 02 2500 Cummin s and it was way taller then my truck stock you know?
