You need a 5125 or 5150 in the rear. How much rear lift did it get? 4"?

Have to measure the amount of up and down travel you will need and then base your purchase off that.

You probably want to upgrade your leafs and get rid of that block, then you can get the shocks you need.

For your current set-up you could get F4-BE5-6248-H5 this but you will need the eyelet adapter. It's the 5125 (custom length 5100)

If you wanted the 5150 you'd need F4-BF5-A196-H1this again the adapter also.

They will accommodate up to 6" of lift (between 3-6").

Just make sure you're bump stops are big enough. The adapters add extension but they take away from compression and I don't want to see you bottom out the shock. (I think you'll be fine but just airing on the side of caution).

Looks like that.

I would give DSMS a call. They know their shit and have helped hundreds on the site. Oh, and if they recommend a different shock than the ones I referenced, go with what they (Sonny or Marco) say.
