if we use a coil spring from a 5.3L or 6.0L truck on a 4.8L will it raise the truck any?? or should i use coil spring spacers. it needs about a 1" lift in the front to run the tires needed. any help would be great. ThankSS

The answer really depends on the specs from the springs themselves, but the key question is how much heavier (if any) are the 5.3L and 6.0L motors?

To the best of my knowledge, they will probably not weigh much (if any) more since all are the same block (I believe) and all are cast iron blocks with alum heads.

Your best bet is gonna be to find the spring specs and go from there. Keep in mind, custom springs to YOUR specs are not that much $$$ (easily under $200 for the pair) and that might be your best option here.
