How to level JKU

We just picked up a 2012 Arctic JKU for my wife. Nice vehicle but it is driving me nuts that the front end is 1 inch lower than rear. I measure 1 inch difference at the fenders with the front lower. Vehicle is equipped with with a tow package so that might be a contributor. Front springs are 17s.

What are the best options to level this thing out?

Can anyone recommend 1" spacers (i.e., companies that make them)?

OK, it seems as though spacers are the way to go but polyurethane or rubber?

The Poly urethane should be stiffer and my experience with bushings is they squeak. I'd go this route if soem of you can comment if they squeak or not.

Thanks

Spacers are spacers for the most part. You can't really go wrong.

Teraflex also makes this cool little setup:

^This, spacers are spacers. Teraflex and Poly Performance makes spacers in different sizes and are extremely affordable. Another good thing about spacers is that they are super easy to install.
