2 1/2" in the front made a HUGE difference! I think if it was just 2" it would be level now and I could leave the rear alone.

With the stock leaf's i think you would be level. if you go with a 1 inch block you're still going to have some nose up bro lean.

$92 with shipping and discount. Guess I'll go this route. Hopefully it's level. The spring should sag after time anyway. Thanks for the help.

My truck is just a daily driver as well. Had 3.5 blocks for about 4 years without any problems. Rangers came with them back in the day from the factory. 3500 rams have them too. So forth and so on. I also used AAL but hated every minute of it. Then I made my own like Doug did but my truck was just way too light for the extra stiffness it brought. So Next up is shackles.
