Exactly. The main goal of any WDH kit should be to return every bit of lost weight back to the front axle. The rear measurements are only a check to be sure you didn't actually increase the rear beyond stock.
You need to shift more weight, by adding more washers. If you are already level, then you may need to drop the head on the shank to the next slot. But try the washers first. If less than 1" tongue-high, that's OK.
