I ran a 9" OUO traction block with my 8" lift and thought it sat just right.

Well with that 6" block is it stacked on the factory block? Because then that would make sense to me for a total of 8" of block with 7" lift

Almost every kit out there you stack blocks unless you upgrade

I have the 7" ICON. I had a 6" OUO block stacked with the factory 2". This had the rear .5" higher. I wanted a solid block and the rear to be a little lower so ordered a 7" PMF block and it now sits a .5" lower and looks much better. You will need an 8.5" block if you want it dead level. Trevor at PMF can make you one. Also, if you have a tune or tow pretty heavy you need to get traction blocks for anything bigger than 6". I don't have them, but I also have a stock motor and don't run the truck hard or tow heavy.
