I used Pro Comp's 6" spring in the rear, it makes a 4" lift without blocks. Nitrogen charged shocks were way too stiff for the rear. Seriously considering an oil shock like an RS5000.

If I had to do it again, I'd use a 6.5" block and traction bars.

I have Bilstein 5100 series shocks on all four corners and 2 on my dual steering stabilizer. Best shocks ever!!! As for springs, Denver Spring and Suspension makes great springs!!!

Do you have your stock springs? 4.5" hangers and newton lift blocks with traction bars in back, I ran the 6.5" pro comp rear springs w/o blocks in back for a while and had good results after custom rear degree shims.
