Lift springs swap?

The stock leaf springs on my '95 are totally shot, unfortunately so is my budget so a new lift kit to replace the stock springs is out of the question for the foreseeable future. What I wondering is I've found a set of used 2" lift springs, just springs- no other parts, can I swap these out for my worn out spring or will I have to purchase other parts? My shocks were replaced not long ago so they are good.

you could, if replaced both rears together or both fronts together. As well, be sure you pick up a few grade 8 bolts and be prepared to cut the old ones out with a die grinder or saw-zaw... I was able to get the four outer bolts loose with a snap-on (900 foot pound) impact gun but the inside 4 had to be cut when we did my recent lift.
