springs or coils?

It may be a dumb question, but I've searched and can't find the difference between leafspring lifts and coil lifts. Looking for pros and cons. My 04 K.R has a 4" lift but with leaf springs in front. I was thinking about going with a 6" kit from procomp but it runs coils. ANY info is greatly appreciated. Thanks

A coil lift would be for 05+ trucks with coil sprung front axles. You need a lift for a leaf sprung front end. Either that or you convert to an 05+ front axle and suspension.
