    Did you put new springs in the front? How did you do the front? Lifts that you buy replace the new springs and the rear (if you put blocks on them) usually sags about 1-2". Usually a helper spring will fix that. If you didn't replace the front springs then if you put a 6" block in the rear it should sit like it did when it was stock. I hope this helps.

    I had that problem, then I just bought the ORD, and 1" add-a-leaf's. Looks awsome now, but my rear springs are bad so i am buying stock replacement springs.

    front i did a 2 inch add a leaf for a jeep which for a leaf over jimmy gives you 4 inches then i got an add a leaf for the rear of my buddies 93 bronco turned it around 180 and opened up the hole where the bolt goes through and that gave me 2 inches a total of 6 inches up front and very smooth ride and awsome flex. the back has just a 3 inch block and some cheap tricks for the rear flex so now i want 6 inches in the rear with a 2 inch add a leaf but should i keep the 3 inch block or use a 4 inch block cuz i know 6 inch kits come with a 4 inch block and a 2 inch add a leaf but how does that look
