2WD springs for 5 lug trucks were designed for spring under. That was how they got the lower stance. I can't say for certain, but the springs for 2WD and 4WD were similar, but I don't believe they were the same (arch, length, etc). So depending on your plans for height, a spring under conversion would possibly be your best option.

I'm not sure what year your truck is, but be aware that 95-97 model years have different size springs compared for 98-04 models. Keep in mind the 2WD springs have one less leaf than 4WD springs.

This thread over at Custom Tacos might be helpful-

Why not add lift to the front instead of lowering the rear?

the leafs in back are already bad at least driver side so they need replacement anyways. money I am 18. don't want to put added stress on front end parts such as CV axle because it is a very old truck. also just more of a lowered kinda guy
