Factory spring suspension travel?

If I swap in SD leaf springs when I put my D60 in front, I'm thinking that it doesn't make sense to lift it any more than the suspension will travel.

How much will a SD leaf spring allow the wheels to travel?

Denton, TX

I envy those that know exactly which modification to make and in the most logical of sequences. But not enough to trade for my meanderings and misfires.

1996 F250 crew cab/short bed, 4x4, auto PSD, 6637 air filter, interior grab handles, stainless window vents, remote door locks work with engine running mod.
