Options for 1-2 additional lift in rear

Finally got everything buttoned up on my Icon 4.5 inch stage 4 lift with coil overs and noticing the rear is about an 1-2 inches lower than the front. Have a 4.5 inch and the addition of coil overs seemed to have added some additional height in the front.

So I'm curious what my options are. As I see them they are as follows.

1. Go from 5 inch Icon block to 6 inch Icon block
2. Remove blocks and add Carli Long travel air bags (will these be tall enough)
3. Add Progressive Add-A-packs or Full progressive spring pack.

Any opinions? I'm looking for the smoothest ride possible and I'm not towing a whole lot.

I would grab either our add-a-pack (2" rear lift) or our full spring pack (same lift as add-a-pack but much better ride). If you went with an ICON coilover system, our springs will help you get the most performance out of your new shocks and yes, our bags will work if you use our springs in the rear. If you utilize the add-a-pack, you'll need to use a 3.5"-4" block with them.
