Default 98 Silverado 1500 sas

Hey guys my names Austin I'm in here. Ok I have a 98 chevy Silverado and I am doing a straight axle swap. I'm using the kit from off road design. I am about to purchase a set of 3/4ton axles from an 87 and maybe the transfer case if it's a np 208. I have done my fare share of research and I think I might have it figured out. But I do have some questions about the rear axle as in what leaf springs to buy for the rear. Should I get the leaf spring for my year truck or year of the axle or? This is my first major build and it's going to be a learning experience if you guys have done this and found a good method please let me know.

I don't like the way that looks. I think I'm going to use 6 onch front leafs plus the 3 inches you gain for doing straight axle. Then a 9 inch leaf in your rear.
