Leveling Kit ?'s

I've decided I am going to order 3" keys from FatBob's Garage. I am also getting new shocks all the way around. I am going to crank the keys a little bit past 3" in order to clear 305/70R18 Dick Cepek FC ll's. The first question I have is what size block to get for the rear so the truck sits level and not raked. Second question is what offset and backspacing do I need to get when i get my new rims.

you might want to think about cognito UCAs too unless you like replacing ball joints often.. If you are going with 3" up front, you could probably use a 1.5" block in the rear and it should be nearly level. I didnt crank my truck up much with the stock keys (maybe 10-12 turns of the bolts). I think it brought it up about 2" in the front...I put the 1.5" blocks in the rear to keep the factory rake.

I dont know about the rim though.

I have considered Cogntio UCA's but think I am going to try it without them first just to see how it rides
