Default Question about front end lift on 2WD XJ

I installed new Leaf Springs on my 2001 Jeep Cherokee 2WD. This jacked the rear end up about 3 1/4" higher than the front end. Measured from the floor to the fender well. I checked with the supplier and was told that I did get the proper springs and they are stock replacements but are heavy duty and the lighter springs fail to quick in their experience. It will settle some but I will need 3" lift in front to make it level. My question is what is the best system to lift the front for a 2wd mall crawler (NO OFFROAD). Any suggestions and vendor suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thank You Sandyman

BTW I installed new shocks and coil springs on the front when I did the leafs if that matters and still have this problem.
