Leveling after Lift

I've got a 2013 JKU that has a dealer installed Mopar 2" lift. I'd like to raise the front just a little to get rid of the slight rake.

I could install spacers in the front, but I'm not sure that's the "right" way to do this.

Has anyone done this before and if so, please fill me in.

Thanks,

Troy

Spacer is fine. The only other way is springs and seeing as how you just had the lift installed, doubt you want to pony up for different springs. If it is as slight as you say then these may suffice. 3/4" to 1.75"

I did the same thing, added a 3/4" spacer on the front of my 3.5" lift. I liked the stance better but the steering felt a little light. I think with the 2" you should not have any issues. Let me know if you need the spacers, I still have them up for sale and sitting in my floorboard!

Yes, your fine with the spacer. Thank of them as a way to "fine tune" your spring height. Synergy makes one as mentioned. Also, TeraFlex makes some nice ones as well!

Thanks for the response guys.

I ordered a set of 3/4" spacers this morning. I'll post some before and after pictures along with dimensions once they're installed.

Thanks,

Troy
