last I remembered Rize springs are Atlas rear leafs. I personally like the idea of the OUO tractions blocks. aprox $1400.00

OUO traction blocks are the best bet, especially if you are tuned. With just taller blocks you will see more axle wrap. With new springs you won't see more axle wrap but you will ride stiffer or lose weight capacity depending on which rear spring you go with. Plus rear springs for the '08s aren't much cheaper than the OUOs. With the OUO setup you keep stock ride and weight capacity and also eliminate the potential for any axle wrap.

That was a concern for the axle wrap with a 6" also and yes it will be spatanized soon hopefully. i do like the ouo setup little pricey but looks very functional.
