I don't recommend using blocks on the front end. they can twist and spit out. Any good shop won't even install them. You need add-a-leafs or just get new spring packs to do it right. your other option is a new hangers/shackles or a shackle flip kit.

maybe you could post him a link where you got your springs? a good fab shop can even re-arch the stock springs.

Depending on the amount of lift you want the best riding kits will be either hanger kits or a mini spring pack..limited to 2.5"
Hangers for a level kit 2-3"
Mini spring packs can reuse stock length shocks, hangers need longer.
Both kits require a adj track bar to recenter your axle.

We have all, PM if we can help.
