5.0 swap spring selection

well i have read alot of articles on this swap and I have most of it down ... I have one question that I have not found the answer to .. my truck is droped with a beltech 4/4 kit.. with the 4.0 in the truck the front end sits about 1 inch lower than the back .. so im thinking that when i put the 5.0 in it will sit even lower .. so I would like to know if anyone has been in this situation as I would like to level out the truck .. i would like a slightly stiffer spring in the front to help keep the front end from becoming a plow.. the truck is a 91 2wd short box

The stiffer springs will keep it from sagging.
