    3" lift, full stereo system with 2 amps and sub behind the rear seat.
    I have the same revtek 3" in front and 1 -1/4 rear blocks. My trucks sits exactly level. I just put a camper shell on it and with anything else in the bed, it sits lower in the back. I am going to do an AAL to get a full 1-3/4 in the back and increase my load capacity. I am not sure why you are 1" low with the blocks you already have in the rear?

    You could go with the OME rear setup. Dakar leafs and OME shocks. Should give you about 2.5-2.75 in. of lift, I've had mine for two days so not much road time, but there reputation speaks for itself.

    You are better off getting front coilovers so you can adjust it than try to put more money in the rear and make the ride even worse than it already is with the spacers/blocks. I ended up with Toytec coilovers and rear 1.5 in blocks, rear bilsteins 5100 shocks and the ride is better than stock !
