If your gonna do a solid axle up front leafs are a good way to go. I don't know how you could do an IFS with leaf springs.

Complete sentences would be a good start

If you could let us know what kind of truck, year, model, drivetrain, etc. etc. then we can help you out. Until then, you're not making any sense man! Help us help you!
