Sagging Rear End

I bought my first diesel about a month ago. 1997 f-250 4x4 7.3L supercab longbed. The truck has a lift kit on it but I don't know what kind. The block that was used to raise the rearend is about 4" and on top of it is the original block with that has that arm sticking out of the side. Tghe front end has three shocks on each side. When the truck is on level ground the front end sits higher than the rear end. None of the leafs seem to be broken.
Is this normal and if not what can I do to fix it? Can I just add a shim to the rear end to level it out or can I lower the front end to level it out?

sounds like ya need to lay off the hoho's....
You could buy a 5.5" block and that would fix it..It probably has a leveling kit ...some will sit higher with a leveling kit..(in the front)

Thanks for the help but wouldn't adding another leaf make the suspension pretty stiff the truck is a heavy duty and feels every bump.

I need another HoHO LOL.
