rear end sag with no load

Quick question... my truck on level ground sags about an 1 1/2- 2 inches with no load ..it is lifted with the pmf traction bars integrated lift block. I was just wondering what ya'll think the best solution to bring the rear end up would be while being cost effective? I was thinking possibly air bags but is it fine to drive constantly on them pumped up to give me the extra 2 inches? Thanks -Jon

Are you saying it sags due to a part defect, or it appears to sag b/c the lifted rear isn't level with the lifted front?

You'll be fine driving with the rear airbags lifted all the time, but I would assume the ride in the back would be slightly more stiff thereby creating a rougher feeling while driving.

i have run bags to level at different times in my trucks evolution but it's not ideal

since you have the PMF blocks already and unfortunately they are the wrong size it sounds like?
you can either lower the front , add to the spring pack thickness , change springs out or replace the unitized block
