Leveling JK after bumper and winch install.

I recently added a Rock Hard stubby and winch to my JK Unlimited. The front is sagging about 3/4inch. I'm running a Teraflex 2.5 BB lift. Ca n I add a 3/4 inch spacer to the front budget boost or do I need to ditch the BB spacers and get new springs? Does aftermarket springs sag like factory ones? Here's some before and after pics. Any options would be great.

Before.


After.

Sir,

I think we have something that will work well for you! Feel free to send me a PM or email and we can go over a few options.

JK looks great in the yellow and black! Just don't tell anyone I said that...

Switch to RK springs, no sag with mine even with both bumpers a full spare and power plant.

I just added 200lbs. of PSC bumper and a Warn M8000.

I don't think you want to add more spacers.

My plan is to go to the Rock Krawler 2.5" spring lift.

So ditch the front spacers and order these http://www.rockkrawler.com/index.php?r_intro=no Then I should be setting level.

Going to order the RK 2.5 kit which as it has been said will give more than 2.5". At what point are do the drive shafts become an issue? 3.5" or 4"?

i recently did the same thing with winch and a hardrock stubby bumper. now is stink bugs. im just gonna do the front acos levelers. gives you alittle more wiggle room and will get you buy time to save money for that perfect lift (poly stage 2 4.5) i have a 2 in budget from the late rubicon express co. lol. already have levelers for rear gonna order fronts next wk. already spent my play money this wk for or-fab rock sliders and a evap relocation bracket kit.

I would suggest just waiting to go with the left that you want. It will save you money down the road and less wrenching time on your rig! You will like that stage 2 from Poly. It should have your rig sitting nice and level.
