Need 1" rear lift

If you needed 1" of rear lift what is the best way to do it? I can get a 1" AAL or I can get custom rear blocks made.. Or I could possibly get a 1" block and just stack it with my factory block??

I have a 2" leveling kit up front but I also have the plow prep package, so I am sitting about 1" low in the rear..

Don't stack blocks. Either get bigger blocks or the AAL.

1" ?
Wouldn't inflating the rear tires additional 15 psi do the trick?
I have strong feeling you need air bags.

I thought that you were going to install a new lift kit in the summer... If that is correct, then I wouldn't spend the $$$ on leveling the rear axle. I would put that $$$ toward the new lift kit.

My plan was to lift it this summer, I was going to do an 6" to 8" lift. But ever since I used my truck as a "real" truck, there is no way I would be happy with a lift kit and bigger tires haha.. So now I think I just want to level it out and leave it how it sits now..

But the front is 1" higher than the rear, it looks weird to me and others ask why is the front higher, it has nothing to do with towing its just the leving kit with the combo of the plow prep package, so I would like to raise the rear 1" to even it out..

Ok, then I would replace the rear block and u-bolts. You have many options from the aftermarket.
