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.
