    Shackle flip in the rear, lift blocks, or new rear springs. That's the only way I can think of.

    i would go with new rear springs. did the back sag before the lift? did you use the same size blocks in the front and back?

    It was a rough country lift kit it had new springs for the front and blocks for the back.I'm wondering if once the springs get broke in if it will be more level?

    I think the company might have sent you a 4 inch lift for the front and a 2.5 for the rear. Either way add a leafs will help, If you do a shackle flip you will get about 4 inches, but then it becomes squirrley on the road and wont tow anything and still be drivable at higer speeds
