installing V springs in the front ONLY?

I have read many helpful threads addressing changing the springs on the excursion and I have decided due to budget to address the front first.

I will be installing new V springs in the front of my 01 Ex and I wanted to know since I am keeping the factory springs in the back what I should do to make sure the Ex doesn't sit front end high.

do I need to install a taller block in the back with the original springs? if so do which block do I go with, a 3.5" tapered block or a 3.5" flat block or no block at all?

to help answer the question all I tow is a very small landscape trailer with Polaris Ranger so nothing too heavy.

can I get away with keeping my stock rear springs?

thank you in advance for you time and help
