Unsure on weight once completed. Lift maybe 4 or 6 inches. Truck is a 50 ish Willys Rockwell axles 46" Michelins Chevy drivtrain. As far as spring rate I dont know what I need.

are we talking a 4.0 I6 or a BBC, theres more than a couple hundred pound difference right there with the drivetrain. for the best results find out the weights of what your building and go from there.
if it were myself, itd be coilovers.
