Is it that easy?

Don't want to sound dumb but I got this idea the other night and can't find info on it and want to know if it will work. So the PO put a bb lift on and I want to replace the coil spacers with 2" lift coil springs, will that work? Is it that easy or is there more to it? If it does is there any way to level the front end out while I'm at it? I don't like the front end being lower than the back lol.

It should be as easy as swapping in the new springs. You can get spaces in varying thicknesses to level it out. I see a lot of people running 3/4 inch spacers in the front.

Is there a stiffer coil that will level it out or one that's 2 3/4inch? And what brand should I be looking at?

This is gonna catch some heat..
I replaced my 2" bb with ome hd springs. Then I removed the front factory isolators and stacked them on the back factory isolators. Then I put the bb spacers back on the front. Given its a 1.75" spacer like mine...it'll flatten out dead even. My rocker measures 23.5 anywhere from front to back.

The isolator is the small rubber piece at the top of the spring to dampen vibrations at the frame from the spring. Here is what my front and back look like now. On the rear, the front isolator is below the rear isolator. It's tough to see the isolator in the pic but hopefully you get the idea.
