f550 springs on an f250 with leveling pucks???

so i read somewhere on the forums that you can substitute a 2 or 2.5 in leveling kit with stock f550 springs, but my question is if thats true can i put the f550 front springs on my truck and keep the level kit i have and make 4 inches of lift and then get some blocks for the rear and make my own 4 inch lift for like uh way friggin cheaper than a whole kit costs? i would do new shocks as well as new brake lines (if needed) now if im figuring correctly i could do this and align my truck and do all the shimming to get the alignment back to where it needs to be and not have to do a drop bracket for the radius arms... the reason im asking is i want to lift my truck but dont have the coin laying around to buy a full on kit. but i have access to f550 springs for free and can make my own blocks at work then all i would have to buy is shocks, u bolts for the rear and brake lines (again if there needed.)

BUMP before i go home to no computer for the day. got the autoguide app but thats a pain on a droid... i took the 550 springs and stashed them away so they wont go to the scrap yard (perfect springs but the rest of the truck is unsalvagable. i did however manage to score a good turbo and oil cooler, the rear springs and a few other saveable things off of it... but all that means little to me because all i want is to lift my truck! so again BUMP. someones gotta know!

Here's another bump for you. I've always wondered about this, just never asked. It'd be a way cheaper way to lift the truck a little.

Anyone? I don't wanna ask at work because I get enough crap for driving a 6.0 from all the guys if I ask this they will probably heat my springs up and lower my truck just cause it's funny to them
