Thinking about expo springs

Here is my Ranger. Its just body lifted with 32x11.5xR15 on 15x10 rims. I was wanted to raise the back in a little bit since with no weight in the back there is a rake. I would say that my rear springs are worn out since I use my truck like a truck and it has almost 170,000 miles on them. I have had a set of explorer leaf springs in the shed for a while now waiting for a lift for the front to put them on. I jacked the back of my truck up to an increase of 2" in the rear wheel well. What's your thoughts? With the truck jacked up, the bed sits level unlike before. What's everyone's thoughts? I also already have longer shocks to throw on there if I do it.

Would blocks work like the edges have? I have thought about doing that also but I may just install some helper springs.

Blocks would work. I just wanted to use my expo springs since I already have them and also because they are supposedly supposed to ride better and have a higher weight rating.

Think it looks alright 2 inches taller in the back? I guess if I put them on I could always take them off.

I like the look of a little bit of rake on trucks. 2" is fine IMO.
