Need some spring advice!

Trying to see if anybody knows what my 02 350 would have looked like when it was new, right now its pretty low in the front and I'm trying to determine whether it is just the way a 350 looks or if the springs are just junk.
Reason behind all of this is that a set of front springs from an 04 FX4 just popped up on craigslist in my area with all of the rancho shocks and u-bolts. It says they only have 5,000 miles on them and mine have 145,000.
Would this level out my truck a little better or would it just be a waste of time to put them in?

As a side note it has V code springs in it, but my 2001 250 with a v10 and x code springs measures almost 2 inches higher than mine between the springs and the bump stops.
I'll see if I can take a picture in the morning to help out.
Really appreciate any help with this!
-Mike

Looks normal to me. Actually, it looks like the back is sagging a bit. My 07' F350 was way higher in the back, than the front.

I know it should sit lower in the front being a 350 but it just seemed to be excessivly low. What got me thinking was I had a stock 04 F250 with a 6.0 in the shop last week and it sat way higher in the front than mine did.

It looks normal to me. I have a dually but I had a F250 Single axle and it sat like that before we leveled it.

The photo looks normal if not nose high already. I want to lower my 350s rear to match the much lower front.
