if you want it to ride factory i would go with a custom 1 piece PMF block like this: Fabricated Unitized Lift Block

the u bolts actually go through the block making it stronger

Best option is a set of Deaver rear 2.5" mini spring packs. Better ride quality, more capacity and less axle wrap than blocks. We have them in stock. PM if I can help.
