front spring questions

Ok, decided to go with new springs instead of shackles. new questions, I found a set of v-code springs with 96k miles on them, how much sag might they have already? looking for about 2 inches of lift in front.Is it worth the time and money to find out? also looking at procomps set that are new, looking for feedback from any body that might have installed a set.

I got a solid 1.5" from a set of settled V codes. 2" you'll need X's. I compared mine to one with W codes and it was about 1" more than mine. When mine was stock, it was about 2.5" higher. The kicker, that one (2003 with 7.3) came off the assembly line with W codes and no special order. I was funky nose high but rode fine.
