If you are lowering 3 inches in the back you would go with a 3 inch block. Likewise a 4 inch block would lower you 4 inches. I think where you are confused is that the rt model already comes lowered an inch in the front and in the rear so in perspective to a regular dakota if you do a 3 inch drop block you will be 4 inches lower than a regular kota cause you already have that extra lowered inch from the factory. Springs should lower you the required height advertised if they are specifically for your vehicle. If you start swapping v6 and v8 springs you will get different results cause they support different weights. Also the only spring I've seen I've like is Eibach so I would go with them. Control arms up front would give you an even better ride up front. Blocks would work in the rear but will give you a tad bit more wheel hop during hard launches. You will need shorter shocks with firmer valving since you will have less suspension travel. You can ride stock shocks but you will bottom out the shock more often and and the ride quality will suck but lots of people do it and don't mind the ride so its a personal call.
