Have rear lift questions? Odd circumstance?

Hello,

I had the TSB done on my 2009 TRD Off Road. I put on a Hell Bent Steel 2.5" front lift to level the truck, and now with my camper shell, and off road bumper on the rear the rear is squatted down a little more than 1/2", so the truck has a weird ass-down stance. I would expect this if it were loaded temporarily but not a good look all the time.

Should I put in a 1" lift block, and if so will I need new U-bolts?

Does anyone make a 1" add a leaf?

Do the shims sold to change the rear angle lift the truck at all?

What do you guys think?

Almost all block kits come with new ubolts and the shims are usually added to fix vibrations not lift the truck more so I doubt you would get an inch of lift from them

Thanks.

Just to clarify I was asking about the shim to see if I could get the 1/2" back, not necessarily looking for 1 full inch, but that seemed like my only option.

I have seen 1" blocks without the U-bolts, that is why I wondered if they were needed.
