Rear shocks with lift blocks??

Hey guys i have a 08 4wd 6 lug and i have been planing on doing a 3 in lift with the 5100 adjustable shocks in the front and thinking a 2 in block in the rear would make it have a factory stance just 3 inches taller...and i want to replace all 4 shocks.is there a special length of shock or something i need in the rear with a lifting block?

We have a Single Leaf style that does stiffen up the pack some if you need extra load support. And we have a 3 Leaf style that make your stock pack function/ride smoother. The bilstein 5100s for the rear will work great.

How does 3" in front & 2" in rear keep the factory stance?
Get an AAL or new leaf pack for the rear.
