It is all specific to how tired your used springs are, where you mount them, your hanger, etc.

That said...my well tired 1988 2wd Chevy 63's mounted using Sky's kit with 6 inch eye to eye single shackle and with the hanger mounted on the flat of the frame I gained 3 inches of lift. A 3 inch block gives me just a slightly higher altitude in the back than the front so depending on your circumstances, I think you might be just fine anywhere from running just the springs with a 5 inch shackle to needing a 2 inch block with a 6 inch shackle to get where you want to be. It's some trial and error and it sucks, but if you try to plan too much it's just going to result in tears when something is an inch and a half off.
