Question how to level front from 3 inch blocks in back?

i put 3 inch blocks on my 99 2500 2wd in the back, and it's got a terrible rake. (obiously) the more i read up on it, the more i think what i need to do isnt really possible, but i figured i ask anyway. what can i do in the front to level it back out? i was looking at a 3 inch leveling kit, but i dont think thatll be enough lift and the 3 inch is a mother on the ball joints. any ideas?

I'd like to see pics of that. Why the blocks in the back?

You might have to go with 2 inch blocks and a two inch leveling kit to level it out.
