I want to lift the front 2 inches to match the rear. If I get 2 in leaf springs, will I get a true 2 inches? Or will I get 1 1/2 inches due to the weight?

if you get 2.5" springs it should be even. The advertised lift is witht he weight of a stock rig on it. If you have a real heavy front bumper, or a big block or something it may make it sit lower.

It depends where you get the springs from. ESPO's 2" springs seem to net a bit less than 2".

Get the 3" springs available from various vendors. you will not need to do any other mods and you'll be glad a few years down the road.
