Default 3.5" lift

I just got a set of 3.5" lift spacers for the front. I wanted to get your guys knowledge on what else I will need to complete the lift. The truck is a 97 1500 it is mainly used on ranch land so no real need for a lot of flex. What size lift will the rear need to level it out? thanks

Depends on how level the truck is once you install the 3.5" lift . You will probably need longer shocks as well . 3.5" seems like it will make the front sit higher so a 1.5" rear block would work to level it out and lift the truck all around .

Do not stack blocks please just get a new block 1 1/2 to 2" taller than the factory one. I recomend control arms and shocks for 3.5"
