Different size coil spacers

My jeep has the "JK gangster lean" and after I added my Ace rear bumper it sags in the back a little. I'm trying to get it sitting level side to side and front to back. Would it hurt anything if I ran different size spacers? I'm thinking 3/4 spacer on passenger rear, 1/2 on Driver rear and 1/2 on passenger front. If this works the way I think it should I will be level all the way around. Thoughts?

I wouldn't stack spacers, but there's no issues with putting different spacers front vs rear.

I'm a JKO Reject

I don't see what the big deal would be. Not sitting level would drive me crazy. Use a bandsaw to cut to size. I cut my front ones down a 1/4" but are same size. I am assuming you mean different sizes to level each corner. I don't see an issue. I mean if you picked up a 600lb Friday night nasty you were gonna carry home I am sure the jeep would drive fine .

You can do that no problem if it is off level like that. Mine sits pretty level side to side if I am on flat ground.

I'm not running any spacers right now. I have a 6 month old RK 2.5 lift. It's leaning "passenger side" 3/4" in front and 1/2" in the rear. And after the Ace bumper I'm sagging about 5/8" in the rear
