What about if you run a 1.5"-2" spacer/leveling kit under your front coil springs and a larger block in the rear leaf springs? Just a thought

Look at the drop arm brackets, I believe they might have another hole to be used as a 6 inch. I think they use the same brackets on 4.5 and 6 inch. I'd say a 1.5 inch spacer wouldn't make any difference.

you could always do an ADD A LEAF in the rear leaf springs or get some lift shackles for the rear and do the spacer up front
