Why not go with RK 1.5" springs? I think the price difference is about $100.00.
Marcus at River City Offroad did a build up of a 2 door with the RK 1.5" springs. You probably saw it.

Just throwing that out there.

x2 on springs. RK or Synergy. I think a few of the vendors, Marcus included could help figure out which will work best.

Problem with spacers and weight on stock coils, they will sag. End result = 0 or little lift.
Spacers are good to get back lost height or like with yourself, a little lift minus any weight.

His case .. Coils would be better

If you're just looking to compensate for the winch, then front springs should be all you need.

RK 1.5" springs are supposed to give you about 1.75" - 2" of lift with winch and bumper in the front (more on a 2 door). Depending on how much factory rake you have, you MIGHT need a 1/2" - 1" spacer in the rear.

Poly has a few more options for you if you have a 4 door. You can go from 1" springs on up.

I have RK triple rate springs front & rear and really like them. I haven't tried Poly's. When I was looking for springs, RK & Poly were on my final list. From the reviews, I don't think you can go wrong with either.
