Leveling-Kit Height Variations

I had a Pro Comp 3.5" Nitro Level Kit installed on my 2013 F-250. When I first had it installed, both front and rear wheel-wells were exactly 45" from the ground to the center of each wheel-well. Its been about two weeks and now the front wheel-well measures about 45" but the rear wheel-well measures about 46". The front lift was acheived by coil-spring spacers and the rear lift was achieved by lift blocks with U-bolts. I added 4 Pro Runner Monotube shocks to the kit.

What can cause this and how can it be modified to make both ends level again?

So the rear came up an inch?

How much fuel was in the truck when you measured before and how much now?

Also did you change tires or alter the tire pressure between the 2 measurements?

Is there any more or less gear or accessories on/in the truck between the measurements?

Did you measure all 4 corners? I have yet to see a Super Duty that sits level from side to side even direct from the factory.

Yeah I actually measured a few more times on different surfaces and they are pretty close to level and when its not, the rear is no more than 0.5" higher. I'm having some gear installed today at 4 Wheel Parts and asked the technician to take a look at it and see if he can tweak anything if the rear has come up. I think its more of an illusion to me that the rear end looks higher because the front end appears lower due to the front bumper obviously extending closer to the ground more than the rear bumper. I guess I would rather have the back half an inch higher than lower for towing and hauling situations. I appreciate the reply, but I think this case is solved if not trivial by nature.
