SAS lift

I bought a wagoneer d44 the other day and it came with the stock leafs but I think i'm going to run the trailgear 5" HD springs in the front. I have a 3" bodylift as well. I might not know until the sas is done but any idea what I need to do to the rear to make it close to the front for lift? Rightnow I have the 3" body lift in the rear and the superlift 3" blocks and the heavy rated stock ranger springs. Do you think keeping the 3" bodylift in the rear with the 3" block and do a add a leaf with chevy shackles would be somewhat close to the 3" bodylift in the front with the d44 and the trailgear 5" lift springs? I know the frontend will start to sag after a few months so it's okay if it's a little front high. I hope my question makes sense. Is the 5" trailgear hd spring set-up good for my set-up? I plan on running 37's on my 07' ranger 4x4 and clearing them good. I've researched quite a bit but i'm still not sure what to do as far as lift.

Are these what I would need for the rear as far as shackles and aal's go? I don't think these are the right aal's??

personally.

ditch the blocks, and AAL.

get some chevy 1/2 ton 2wd springs from 88-98. Run those that will lift the ranger 2-3" and run the bel-6400 shackle for another 1-2 inches. keep the stock blocks.

The rears are still fine. Its the front that sagged badly. He now has the TG 5" HD leaf springs and they seem to be holding up just fine.

I'm doing the 5" tg leafs forsure. Plus I got this axle because that's what i'm running. If I wanted coils, I would of chosen a different axle. I'm trying to decide if I want to keep the bodylift. Either I need to set-up the lift with or without the intent on keeping the 3" bl. I want to clear 37's easy. Not totally sky them but have plenty of room for them if that makes sense. Probably about as much lift as zach has. But leaf sprung.
