Rancho 4" lift issues

I got this lift and it came with some almost 5" rear blocks and I'm pretty sure Im going to be nose high when I am done with the install because right now I already have the back done and with my front with a 1.5" ready lift spacer which I will of course remove when I install the new rancho coils Im only about an inch and a half higher in the rear. If I wanted to do away with my blocks and just get some deaver springs what size would I need.

will do... I know I really need to eliminate the block with the HP I'm pushing but I'm slap out of money so it will have to do. I ordered the kit from Rock Auto and they sent everything but the Springs. Rancho kits are stupid because you have to buy the kit then buy the shocks then buy the springs. I forsee a headache trying to get Rock Auto to hurry up with this as they seem to like taking their sweet a$$ time.

beware of rock auto.... never heard back as of yet so I just called again and they said the guy working on my problem left because of an unexpected emergency. So I'm talking to this other pathetic girl now and ask her can I expect to hear back from someone today and she told me she could not predict the future. At that point I lost the niceness a little bit.

Well I got the Lift installed after several broken tools and 2 grueling afternoons of nothing but problems. The back is lower than the front by about an inch and a half so I ordered a 2" add a leaf. I hope it doesnt ride like crap. Here are some pics.
