Rear lift block size

My truck is in the shop getting some repair work and I got them to put on some 7" Icon front coils to replace my 6" Fabtech springs. The truck already sat a little low in the rear. So my question is does anyone who has the ICON front coils know what size lift block I need to make it sit level. I DO NOT want the back to sit higher that's is for sure. I also want just one block. I have stacked blocks now.

I would measure but it's in the shop so I want to order it before it gets back to me.

So here's the deal. The factory block is 1 7/8". Fabtech says there lift block is 5". So 6 7/8" of blocks is what I currently have and I already had a good amount of rear squat the way it was. Now im getting the 7" Icon springs in front. So I would assume I would need atleast a 7 7/8" of block in rear to sit like it does now. ...... but when I called trevor at PMF he said to get a 7" block. I think its going to look like I have 1500lbs in the bed

When we had talked on a the phone, you stated that you wanted the truck to sit level or with the rear low. You said you DID NOT want the rear to be higher than the front. For the truck to sit level with a very slight rake, you would want a 7.5"-8" block with the Icon coils. Thus the reason I recommended the 7" blocks. If you would like to change the order, Im more than happy to change it to whatever you wish. We will begin to process the order tomorrow though, so if you would like to change it, please get back to me ASAP.

Hey im not trying to insult your knowledge nor was I in any way implying that you hadn't displayed excellent customer service. However after we spoke I did some thinking and research and found the fabtech blocks to be 5" not 4" like I thought. My mistakes. But yes I will need a 8" block. I think my spring pack is shot because it was already pretty butt heavy. Ill call tomorrow to pay the difference.

Thank you Trevor
