Default 3/4 ton springs in a half ton?

Has anyone put 3/4 ton springs on the front of their half ton? I've read about it but haven't got to see one. I abandoned my SAS swap once i was informed on here that i'd have to do at least 6 inches of lift. I use my truck too much for that. I just decided i want to run 32's with some room around them. Thanks!

you can use 3/4 ton springs however you will get a very harsh RIDE
