Default sag in front end

Hey guys,
As stated, I have a 02 2.3 mauual regular cab with a sagging front end. Have over 170,000 miles on the frame. Felt a new set of springs are in order, but now wondering if I should upgrade from stock springs. I will eventually put a 4.0 or a 5.0 in so want to take that into consideration. Moog has a good collection from stock to what is needed for extended cab with a 4.0 for about the same price. Anyone have any thoughts of stepping up to a stiffer spring-maybe even get a little extra height to level out the front to the rear.... Any commment are welcome at this point. The truck is not lifted in any way at this point and only has 235 tires on it.

TIA

If youre going to swap to the 4L or the 5L your are going to have to change pretty much your whole front ends structure (from what I understand) since I believe you have Coils and no torsion bars.
