Looking for rear lift options

I am looking for rear lift options/opinions for my 05 F250. Truck had a 8" lift already installed when I purchased it and the rear is all block. I know I need a lift spring, but my question is which one would be the best. All the spring companies have the same claim about ride quality. Has anyone changed from a pro comp leaf spring to an atlas or icon and noticed a big change in ride quality? Just wandering if it would be worth the differance in price between pro comp and atlas. Also what combination of spring and block/no block would be the best to go with.

I would go with factory block and an 8 inch spring. As far as ride quality Icon will be your best bet from what I have experienced in my truck, riding in friends trucks with icon.

You can do OUO Traction Blocks and keep the stock springs.

Or of course, Icon springs if you want the best spring for the money:
