Why don't you want a block? A 3" block isn't going to hurt anything and will likely be the cheapest way to get the rear to match the front!

What spindles lift did you do, how high ?

I installed a 4.5" SuperLift lift kit BUT deleted the OEM and the SL Blocks and used a set of the 6" SkyJacker Softride rear leafs ! The new leafs equaled the 4.5" lift, maybe a little more than that.

On my short bed std cab the leafs ride a little harder than I wanted but ok for now.

Oh ya, add a leafs do not always add lift to a truck...

lol yea guys already shackled (2in) and AAL. i would much rather have the skyjacker lift leafs where did you get them? and the front was a 3 inch spindle i forgot what brand not fabtech ones though.
and just to get an answer if someone could check out this thread of mine about my stupid snapped parking brake cable? https://www.ranger-forums.com/general-technical-electrical-18/emergency-brake-cable-question-128063/
