With the 8.5" front I would run a 9" rear. Unless you wanted to have the rear higher and a little bit of rake to the truck.

So OUO does make a 9" Traction block w/bars? Can I run this with stock springs and just changer out the shocks?

Thank for the info..I talked with Doc yesterday, but he said Marty had to talk with me, so thanks for the reply and trying to get me squared away. I appreciate it.

Yep, OUO does make a 9" Traction Block so you could keep your stock springs. And correct, just swap out the shocks.
