Toytec Spacer Lift Question

I recently installed a 3'' OME toytec 884 lift . For the first couple of weeks I was very happy with it, but now it looks like the front end has settled and is a lot lower then the back. To fix this problem everybody I talked to said to put the factory springs back in and purchase the 3'' spacer lift. I ordered the 3'' spacer lift through toytec and when I opened the box I was expecting the spacers to measure 3 inches. The measurements are as follows: top plate is .5 inch but the one I am most concerened about is the main spacer that only measures 1 1/4? Can anyone explain this to me. If you have this lift were these the measurements on yours? Do I have the correct spacers? Please help.

I don't know if anyone answered your question or not but its late and I am up unable to sleep. I believe that with the larger spacer ontop of you coil springs it shortens them enough to not compress as much under the weight of the vehicle. The coil spring will now be tighter and firmer, taking more force to compress and the spacer plate will take up the distance lost. That is just how I look at it. Today I installed my lift with 884 coils and noticed that when I put the new spring in and compared it to the opposite sides strut they were the exact same length. So all I can see is that the new springs are firmer not giving in to the weight of the truck as much. I imagine that putting that spacer on top does basically the same thing, although it lowers the spring it makes it more resistant to compression due to weight.
