Lift blocks are designed for lifting a vehicle, not resolving sagging springs, same for extended shackles. The best thing to do will be to rebuild them, and you will get a much better ride by adding another main leaf than going w/blocks or a shackle.
Kerry, its very easy to add a leaf to your spring packs. do you have basic hand tools?? 4 inch grinder?? if so you can easily install a long leaf to your packs, you can easily get some from ruff country and many other vendors but make sure they are LONG leaves, personally i much prefer getting some springs from the junk yard. either some toyota springs or 2wd chevy S10 springs or 2wd F150 springs basically any leaf spring set thats 2 1/2 inches wide and has good arch to them, many "add a leaf" kits are short very thick leaves that end up bending the original springs, using the longest leaf you can find will offer a better ride and more lift.
Sure you could add another leaf to the pack, which is basically doing the same as any stop-gap measure, in the end the only real cure would be to replace the fatigued springs with a new set. Even having springs re-ached will weaken them causing failure in the future. If they were not old and fatigued I would suggest adding leafs but a fatigued set will only fail in the future. It's a crap-shoot with any of the fixes on fatigued springs but the easiest, least expensive, least work, and quickest is a shackle lift. Now if he decides to go that route and add a leaf he needs to remove the flat load leaf and replace it with a long load leaf this will help to avoid a harsh ride.
