Help with rake after OME install

Looking for some advice from other members that have installed a complete OME lift kit.

I had their 2.5" heavy duty kit installed on my 04 Rubi a week ago. I got the heavy duty kit that includes the heavy coils both front and rear as well as the standard nitro charger shocks. Currently I'm running a warn front bumper and a warn winch, and just a warn bumper on the rear WITHOUT the swing away tire carrier.

After the install, my rake is off front to rear by almost 3" (being 3" taller in the rear). I opted for the heavy rear coils with future plans in mind (possibly running a hard top and/or traveling with some pretty heavy cargo in the rear).

My question is....has anyone else had this significant amount of rake variance after installing an OME kit, and if so, what did you do to level your rig out? The OME trim spacers are only 3/8" should I look at adding another brand of coil spacers OR possibly change the current rear coils to lighter ones?
