Teraflex 2.5" BB level? Stacking spacers???

I am about to pull the trigger on a teraflex 2.5 BB with shock adapters. I have an '07 Unlimited Sahara and I can already notice the slight rake to the front. If I put this lift in will it level it out? I have heard it doesnt and the spacers are 2.5 in the back and 2.5 in the front. I have heard mixed reviews about putting spacers on top of spacers. I still have stock bumpers and no winch, but should I throw a 3/4 spacer on top of the 2.5 in the front? Or not safe?? Or should I try and find a 3" spacer for the front and use the 2.5" teraflex spacers in the back? Ive been searching like crazy, but just cant find all the info i need. I really dont like the raked look and would like to have it sit level if i lift it. So what would you guys suggest to get it level? Would love to hear from folks with this lift.

Have the same lift (but with 9550s, not adapters) but on a 2dr with a super heavy front bumper and an EPi9.0, combined weight of winch and bumper is 220lbs and it dropped the nose considerably. Put in a pair of 4dr Rubicon front springs that picked the nose up some but still has some rake that I'll just have to deal with until the major suspension upgrade.

spend a little more if you can, and go for the TF 2.5 coil lift especially if you plan on aftermarket bumpers. The kit will level your jeep out as well.

Im sticking with a simple spacer lift for now. This is my DD and dont do anything too crazy off road. If I get more into off roading I will def do a rock krawler lift, but for now spacers it is. So is there anything i can do to get the teraflex 2.5 BB to sit level??
Really just planning on doing this 2.5 spacer lift some bushwacker flat flares and some 35's and ill be happy for now.

Well I think I solved my problem. I just ordered the Readylift 69-6000 SST Mild Lift Kit. It is a spacer lift that the rears are 2" and the front is 3" so it will sit level. Anyone have any experience with this lift?
