Front end lift help

My 98 niner has a 4in xflex rough country that I put on a year or so ago. Front end sits way low but a tape measure ground to bottom of fender (on gravel no concrete here) it shows about 9/16-5/8 low but it looks really low sure it's just the body line but I am thinking for a fix is taller springs either 5 or 7in. I have spacers not positive on size previous owner had them installed and I have not measured them. I do not want to get rid of them so taking the rears out is not what I wanna do. Being the 5.9 I'm sure weight has a lot to do with it but the 5.2 weighs close enough if you've had this problem what was your fix or your opinion? Also have to get front adjustable uppers front end is in one hell of a bind.... Thanks for your input

Measure center of hub to fender on the front and back to see how much it truly is out, ground to fender won't really work.
