lean with rough country lift??

I have a 8inch rough country lift. the back sits about 2inches lower then the front. it has 8 inch blocks in the back. seeing if anyone of you guys with rough country lifts are seeing this with your lifts. im going to get traction bars with blocks but don't know if I should go with 9in or 10in blocks? I don't want the rake look either I just want it level. what do you guys think? here is a pic of it now.

The fender cut out is 1" bigger in the front. That'll throw your eyes off big time. Park on level ground and measure to the body line, go from there as far as what the difference is then add another inch on top of the difference to then make it "level" fender cut out to fender cut out (front vs rear cut out). Only problem is rear lower corners of the fender will then be a little higher, if that makes since since rear will actually be higher (bottom of fender edge to top of tire) then from to match the fender cut out.

I would look into custom leafs instead a huge block like that.
