    Yes avoid large blocks in the rear!
    Hear are the three ways I would consider:
    Do the shakel flip with a new set of 2"or3" SpringPacks
    Get 6" spring packs with no less than 8 leaves per pack.(You may need the ORD 1"block or addaleaf to level your rig out)
    Or the last way would bee to use 2"blocks and 4" Leafspring Packs.
    Keep in mind that most all springpacks are made to the weight specs of a PickUp and the K5 has a heavy butt!
    I have 4"packs in the front and 5 1/2" Superlift packs in the rear and my rig sits level.......
    Good Luck
