Off Road 1500 Rams use #023, #024, and 255AA springs in front
QC Off-Road 1500's get a #024 / #225AA front spring combination

Off Road 1500 Rams use 292AH springs with 2-3/8" spacers in the rear.

While the Off-Roadster coils are stiffer, they are not physically taller than a standard 4x4 coil. In my case, an uncompressed #019 was approximately the same height of an uncompressed #225AA. Added height is simply due to the increased stiffness. 2500 coils, on the other hand, are physically taller, although there are apparently 2500 coils that are rated for less weight than some 1500 coils.
Adding Off-Roadster coils to a standard 1500 4x4 should yield approximately 1 3/4" of lift while adding 2500 springs to a 1500 will be closer to, or possibly more than 2". Additionally, the Off-Roadster coils should slip right in once you have the axle dropped, but 2500 coils would probably need to be compressed for installation.
