Default Chevy lift on a dodge

I know they will fit cause i have chevy springs on my 83 ram right now. My question is do the front springs end up giving as much lift on a dodge as the rears do? I have 6" springs all the way around and the front sits lower then the rear.

has it been like that since you put the lift on? if so then it's supposed to be like that. if it was level at first and it's not now well then that just means the springs have settled in.

I put Dodge 4'' lift springs on the front of a blazer and it ended up being atleast 6'' of lift.

because it's a pickup designed to haul stuff in. you want the rear to sit slightly higher then the front so when you put a load in the bed or a trailer tied to the back the truck will sit level.
