Is a notch needed to sit level on bags
 
I have tried searching but have not had much luck. I have 2.5" drop spindles in the front with plates and cups for the bags. In the rear I am doing bags on trailing arms in the stock spring location.

Will I need to notch the rear so that it sits level aired out? If so how much?

Not trying to lay frame just want it to sit level.

When aired out, the front will sit lower even with a notch in the rear. You might as well go ahead and put in a notch. Any standard notch will do as they are as deep as you can go before the center of the rearend hits the bedfloor.

X2...notch the rear and if the suspension is configured correctly the truck should lay out level, unless the rwar driveline doesn't clear the crossmembers or lthe tunnel of the cab.
