The second spring up from the bottom needs to come out...that should drop ya good. If you want to go another route. Belltech makes 2 inch drop shackles for the rear end.

You could also take out the rear blocks for probably a 1.5 inch drop. Or my favorite, level the front

Definitely level the front. Get longer coil springs (leveling springs) or coil spring spacers
