Looks like the a** end sags

Hello all. About a month ago I bought an 03 F250 superduty 7.3 short bed supercab with a 4" lift and 315/75/16s. Not sure exactly what kind of lift it is but more than likely a block lift like Pro-comp or something. I'm new to the lifted truck world. From certain angles it looks like the back end sits lower than the front. The distance from tire to fender is actually more on the back than on the front so I know it's just an illusion but... I was wondering if there was an easy way to add another 1/2 inch or so of lift in the back to offset this look. Do I need t get a set of 4 1/2 inch blocks or do they make some sort of spacers to slide in??

Thanks.
