My 2009 F350 Harley 6" lift (procomp) Front end height question

I bought a 2009 F350 Harley last June and befor I bought it I told them to install a procomp 6" Lift, different 20" rims and 37"x12.5 tires. Now I really love what theyve done to it. But there is one concern I have. The front end seems and definatly is a few inches lower than the back end, I think I measured a 3.5" difference in the rear to front wheel wells. Is there something that can be adjusted to make the truck more level? or is there somthing else I need to buy now thats seperate from the lift kit itself?, I will post a picture of the truck in this post.

You may want to look into some 2.5 inch coil spacers to help level out the front.

i agree with the coil spacers. that second pic needs to be closer and have more light.

is it a single block or stacked block? if its a stacked block you could always remove the stock block which is about 2.5"
