Springs wont help you, 350 springs actually have a lower rating than 250 springs

The best way is to swap a D60 into it and the rear blocks from a 350

The cheapest is to add-a-leaf and get the wheels realigned so the camber is right.

if only adding a leaf to the fron you wont need anything in the back, the rear is if you put a D60 front end in

If I add a leaf to the front wont I need somthing in the rear so it sits level? The truck sits level now I just want it about 2 inches higher and I want to maybe run 285s or 315s

Why not just lift it? I think lift kits are fairly cheap.

You have to forgive us, we dont know what your truck looks like and are only going off what we are told which is sometimes hard to visualize
