Default BDS lift kit issue

Purchased a lift kit through a supplier online and had a local shop install it for me.

I have a 2008 dodge ram 1500 4x4 quad cab short box

the kit is a BDS 6'' lift with new leafs for the back.

Upon picking my truck up from the shop I noticed the rear is sitting WAY too high.

Does anyone else have this lift kit WITH the leafs? what are your measurments from the centre of the wheel to the top of the wheel well lip?

My front is 26.5'' and rear is 32''.

I checked the part numbers on the leafs and they are correct (both the sticker and the stamped number confirm it) The shop believes they sent me the wrong leaves even though the part number is correct. In talks with BDS about this because my truck looks stupid with how high the rear is sitting when on a flat/level surface.

Should I add a front level kit + bilstein 5100's? is that even possible? I would need to like the front by 4 to 5'' to make it look good but I dont think the rear end is safe having been lifted so high with these leafs.
