I know that some of the a-arm suspension came with coil springs, but I don't remember what years... If its torsion bars its much easier to lift the front end. You would be much better off spending the pennies and getting a superlift kit with the proper drop brackets. Those coil adjuster things are an accident waiting to happen.
I would stay away from lift blocks. They will contribute to axle wrap.
What I would recommend, is the Belltech 6400 shackle. It's about the same price and will lift you anywhere between 1 and 3" in the rear.
