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

3.5" lift with 17" MT Classic II 315/70/17 Pro Comp Xtreme ATs
4" MBRP turbo back cat delete, ARP studs,

LED bars and pods, FICM from Ed, Blue Spring
DC Power 270 alternator, Mishimoto intake elbow,
Mishimoto Coolant Filter, Scan Gauge II,
A-pillar gauges (Boost, EGT, Fuel pres.),
Air Compressor w/"quiet" horn

for life!
