Hello OP. If I was in you situation, and you want the rear to be higher than the front, I would go either alcan or deaver leaf pack. Dont worry about blocks. You dont want those. I am not sure if you get a pack of OME Dakars and AAL to it if it would sit you high or not. If it does, go that route. Good Luck with your choice

get the all pro expo leaf pack. it’s made for a 3” lift and from what i under stand it will sit level WHEN you have 400 to 500 pounds in the bed so when you don’t have anything(or less than 400#) it should sit higher in the back, but i’m not 100% sure. maybe call them and ask if it sits higher than 3” when the bed is unloaded.

no prob! and the drive shaft shims or carrier bearing drop, may or may not be needed. pretty sure some guys have not had problems like some have. and the shocks you get should be adjustable and or just longer if they are set/ made for a 3” lift. i know the 6” lifted guys don’t have mount extenders, that shocks them selfless are longer.
