Honestly, instead of monkeying too much with the hitch and perches, I'd just adjust the ball height down how ever much you lifted the rear of your truck. 3" lift up, makes for 3" ball drop. You get the idea.
Also, don't change the perches and all that right away. The head height does not affect the spring bar tension. If it was dialed in on your truck before the lift and you leave the same # of washers in, it will provide the same tension regardless of ball height.
The real difference in how your truck sits is that it may be a bit nose high if your truck had the stock rake but now is lifted level. The front will appear to be high because the rear comes down a bit; however, it's the lift/level, not that your hitch isn't working properly.
If I recall correctly, from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground was 19 1/2". I set the bottom of the ball to 20" with 3 washers and the perches were set right in their center setting. Truck rides great.
