f350 front spring thickness

Ok, so im doing a D60 swap. Trying to buy used spring from the local auto recycler. What is the thickness of the stock front springs? ( i know i should get sd springs and rsk but not in the budget right now) The guy at the counter said theres a 1.45" and 2.03". I talked to a few guys in another thread and one measured his from a 95 and it was about 2". But another gave me his spring code from his vin and when i looked it up it was a 1.45" and that truck was a 86. Any help would be nice, or opinions. Thanks!

i would think that you want a set of 350 springs that are 2 leaf i wouldn't think there were many options except weight

Well im told they both have 2 leafs. and when i looked up aftermarket they have 2", 1 7/16, 1 13/16, and 1 17/16 (idk if a typo on the website?) but the 1 13/16 have the lowest capacity with 2,200 lbs.
But since i want used do i get the thinnest hoping for the best ride? cause the 1.45 would be just over 1 7/16

STOCK FORD springs are 1.5". but Both the small block and BigBlock/diesel springs measure the same

AFTERMARKET 3 leaf springs are probably the 2.03"
