I'm having a little trouble visualizing your situation. If the transmission was 3 down and the original rear 3 up, then the new springs raised the back of the chassis, that should have reduced the angle that the transmission was down, not increased it. It should now be closer to level (or raised slightly above level). Without changing anything else, adding lowering blocks to the rear (equal to the increase because of the new springs) should return everything to the previous alignment. You would probably need to use an angled block to adjust the pinion angle now, lowered or not.
