How much should my springs compress?

I just finished a 6.2 diesel conversion in my 94 FZJ80. I installed the OME stock height springs and some Mr Gasket 1" spacers in front. It sits pretty level but I was looking at is this afternoon and noticed that the top 3 coils on the springs were all the way compressed. The rest of the spring looks normal though. When I ordered the stock height springs the fronts were listed as heavies, not sure if that is true or not. The 6.2 doesn't weigh much more than the 1FZE (about 750 lbs) so they are probably ok, it just surprised me when I noticed that today and am wondering if that is normal or an indicator that I need heavier/taller springs?
