Leveled with rough country but need one more inch

I leveled my 02 F250 with the rough country front add a leaf from topguncustomz in hopes of putting on 315s. They will fit but will cut it way too close for a truck that does a lot of hauling on rough farm roads. So my queston is If I want one more inch up front for a little breathing room can I use a block made from the thick bottom layer of the rear leaf spring pac that sits on the rear Block (bye cutting off the ends to match the front mounting area) or just add another smaller leaf to the front? I have the parts laying around to do either, and wonder which would be better and if there is some reason why I should not do one or the other. Thanks for your help here.

Any more then the 2.5 & you will need to change the track bar. Its already tight. 315's will fit fine the only rubbing you will experience is on full lock turns. If your that concerned with clearance ( and they will clear) - why not install a 4" lift? Even with a lift - they will rub on a tight turn at full lock.
