3" Rear block

Hey fellas, just installed a pro comp leveling kit on my 07 4x4. The front end is sitting a little higher than the back. About an inch. I was debating what to do about this and my options are, add a leaf, replace the factory block with a 3 inch one, or some guys have stacked a 1 inch block on top of the factory one. Any advice or brand advice from guys who have done this would be nice. Thanks!

Stacking blocks is not a good idea IMO

I used the ready lift rear block kit when I levelled my truck. It replaced the stock block with the new 3"block. Never had any problems yet and it's a great quality product. I paid Around $130 and it came with all hardware as well as a lifetime warranty if they were to ever break. Which is highly unlikely.

Im thinking of going with the 3" rear block from ready lift. Ordering it online is brutal with shipping costs though. Does anyone know a place in my neck of the woods i can pick one up?

Had the same problem when I put Bilsteins on my truck. I went with the Readylift 3" blocks, easy install. I got mine from National 4wd(now 4wheelparts) on Harvester Road in Burlington.

Any vehicle accessory place can most likely order it for you.

Does anyone have a measurement of how much lift they got from it? Maybe a pic. I'm thinking I need an inch and a half lift to level it out completely.
