Leveling My K10?

I put a 4" Rough Country lift on my truck and the rear sits about 2 inches higher than the front. I removed the overload spring and im still about an inch difference. I was thinking about removing another one or two springs but where should i take it out of the pack?

Make sure you got the right part numbers. But id put a longer shackle before I remove a leaf.

If I remember correctly you can use lowering shackles for a two wheel drive as well.
