Default Car sits 3/4 inch higher with dana 60 rear

Like my title says since my strange dana 60 install the rear of my car sits 3/4 inch higher in the rear than it does in the front. I still have stock springs, panhard bar and torque arm on the car. Any ideas would be appreciated.

It is to be expected with a rear that big. Removing the rubber isolator would be first on the list of things to do if you don't plan on changing the springs on all four corners with those of the lowering variety.
