Default Silverado rear hanger flip

Has anyone ever done this or have pictures of this being done. I want to get rid of the blocks in the rear but i dont want to get lift springs. I have a 2001 but 88-06 should be close to the same

I have a 6.5" bds suspension lift and have 4" blocks in the rear

SOA?
On the rear axle the rear hanger has the the shackles pointing up with the eye of the spring on the top. I want to flip the rear hanger so the eye of the spring is on the bottom of the shackle.

SOA = spring over axle

But my thinking was retarded.
