Is this amount of lift normal for stock coil and spring replacement?

I wanted to raise my 2003 4.3 zq8 s10 back to stock height because I need more clearance where I drive. I went to rock auto and purchased Moog 80994 coil springs and some HUSKY Leaf Springs 221143. Before the lift my rear was 1.5" higher and now it's a little over 3" higher than the front. Looks weird raked that much. Very stiff ride also. I'm very surprised how high my truck lifted from these parts. Front measures 30" from bottom of tire to top of wheel well and 33" in rear.

When I was shopping for stock height leaf springs at Oreilys, Auto Zone, ect, all the springs were rating 1350 lbs so I assumed that was your standard leaf spring that came on stock s10's. This bites as I am already invested over $500 in these springs after installation and I can't return them now.
