i would jsut invest in new coils.. they arent tooo expensive and it will get rid of any sag in the springs in there now and give it the true 2" lift

+1 on the coils. As long as your only lifting the front two inchs there should'nt be any trouble aligning the wheels.

alright, well, is there any other trucks that he could just take the springs out of at, lets say a junk yard and just replace his stock ones, to save a couple bucks.
