Springs are NOT the best way to lower the front of the truck. you'll be much better off with drop spindles, then adjust
the spring rate and height for the height and ride/weight transfer characteristics you want. Dropping the front 3" with springs alone will cause alignment AND suspension travel
issues. Kinda the same in the rear, drop springs are much better than blocks, IMHO, but blocks will
work ok back there as long as you have some sort of traction device.
I'd search for a reasonably priced set of 2" drop spindles, then maybe cut 1/2 to 1 full coil off your current springs for a 3" front drop. And you can buy block kits at Autozone or on eBay for pretty cheap. You really
blocks that correct the pinion angle though, when it's done, you want about 4° down on your pinion angle.
