1" (higher over stock) lift blocks?

After the superlift suspension has setteled, my truck sits 1/4" higher in the front than the rear. I already have AAL's and shackles. Now all i want to do is get a lift block for the rear that is going to give me 1" of lift. Anyone have any suggestions on a brand or anything? I am having trouble finding such a thing, and i dont have time to do a spring swap, i need this soon.

Thanks!

EDIT - The Stock blocks are in place, as well as the AAL's and Shackles..

Why would i cut the blocks? That would lower my truck, im looking to lift it. If anything i would ADD to the stock blocks, not cut them.

After seeing what happened to another member of this forums truck, I would never run anything larger than the stock block.

Brobably time to look into a new leaf pack or chevy leafs

This may not have been though of Mark but you could lower the torsion bars some to level it out. Check summit they have lift blocks.

If I am not mistaken those were some cheap blocks though, I could be wrong.

Hey bill i called summit and Skyjacker makes 3.5" blocks, which is 1" taller than the stock 2.5" block. I may go that route, as in removing my stock blocks, and replacing them with the skyjacker ones.
