Front leaf spring help!!!!! 1995 f250 7.3

I have had my 1995 f250 7.3 for about a year now and the front leaf springs are pretty wore out and sagging horribly to the point where I don't want to drive it. I went and looked at them and I think the guy before me tried to lift my truck a cheap way. Instead of the original factory 2 leaf leaf pack in the front there are the 2 original plus and add a leaf with 4 more short leafs after that. The rear springs there is 5 leafs in the pack. I'm riding on 33's. So I'm curious if the guy tried to put a 4 inch lift on this truck the cheap way? I'm looking at buying 4 inch front leave springs from this guy for real cheap and need to know if it won't be a stupid buy. Please help ASAP

would def scrap whatever it is you have in the front right now...replace the whole spring...better off with new ones up front but lightly used USED springs..are sketchy...still work though..be sure to get NEW bushings/bolts as well...

But can I buy the 4inch springs this guy is selling? They are brand new, I'm just asking would they work with what it seems like the guy before me seemed to have done a cheap lift?

With the 2.5 inches from the makshift blocks this guy made out of short leafs plus the add a leaf that prolly added 1.5-2 inches to the original leafs I'm just asking if it would make sense if I went ahead and bought the superlift 4 inch leaf springs for the front. He also has superlift shock absorbers on both sides with the dual shock setup. So I'm thinking he must have some short of a lift kit on it because of the superlift shock absorbers. Help please

It's confusing I know. I just don't want to throw these new springs on and find out it boosts my front end up uncomfortably higher then the rear and be out 180$ I give this guy for them. They are the super lift 4 inch lift front springs brand new. I need springs there is no questioning it I just don't wanna make my truck look retarded let alone waste 180$ on to big springs

ahh.. i see..okay i would get the springs...thats cheap and worth it..if you already think its at least 4'' do it man...worst case you gotta spend 20-60 bucks on some shims or an add a leaf for the rear..but honestly i think the weight will make it look great up front...if not..buy them and ill give you 200$ for em if you dont like em
