A 5" block will probably sit the rear a tad lower than the front you may need a 6" to be level but it's really hard to say it seems every truck sits a little different depending on spring age and sag from hauling weight.

5" rear blocks will sit your '05 level with the Icon 4.5" system. In your case the Icon blocks will do fine. However the OUO blocks do have the advantage of allowing you to adjust axle position. They are also available in .5" increments and flat or tapered.
