Soften the rear after lift

I have a 09 with a 6" Fabtech Performance. In the front are dirt logic coilovers which are great. Firm yet supple over bumps.

However in the rear, the performance shocks and block combo on stock leafs are very stiff.

What options are out there to soften the rear just a bit?

I don't think getting the dirt logic shocks would help a whole bunch. I think it will come down to the leafs themselves.

I have been told there are better leaf packs out there, I just don't know which ones other than Dakars.

Yeah I would ditch the blocks. You would ditch axle wrap at the same time too.
