4 degree is perfect to compensate for the shackle. You don't need any for the spring lift as it won't alter caster. 6 would be to much.
The goal up front is to get the caster right. Was your goal in back to get the pinion angle correct with respect to the t-case output? On my k5 I worked to get the pinion angle to match the output angle in order to kill u-joint vibration. In the end it didn't work and I ended up with a cv driveshaft.

I just wanted to make sure you thought 4* seemed about right for the rear too, and that I understood the reasoning.
