97-f250 add a leaf/new springs

Hi I need to put new springs front and rear on my 97 supercab,front is sagging pretty good and one leaf on each of the rears broken,I want the truck to sit pretty much the same height as it was new or maybe 2 inches higher only, but if I add a leaf to the front and rear will it ride like crap? or not be to bad?

Personally I'd say just go for it.

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

the rear usually stiffens up bit, definatly replace the broken spring sets.
