1.5 or 3" drop Hotchkiss rear leaf spring

68, vert, sbc/pwr gld, hotchkiss 600 lb 2" drop front springs and ridetech tru-turn 2" drop spindle. sc&c 1"spring spacer to lift 1" for total of 3" front drop. Outer fender well center height to floor is 25" f 26" r with 275 35 18 wheel tire combo approx 25.6" tire diameter. Rear currently has original worn out mono leaf with 1" lowering block and sits just how i want it.
Rear leaf is way to soft bottoms out way too often want to swap for 175 lb leaf spring but not sure which would be closest to worn out monoleaf with a 1" lowering block. 1.5" or the 3" when referring to to drop vs "stock" height.
Anyone had trial and error on this similar set up?

Go with the 3" drop. 1.5" won't get you where you want to be.
