3" Black Diamond Lift

Hey everyone, I have a 2008 Rubicon Unlimited with Smittbily XRC front and rear bumpers plus the XRC8 Winch mounted up front. As it sits right now, there is a 2" difference between the front and rear fender heights. I just received the Black Diamond 3" lift that will be installed on Monday. My question for you guys is whether or not I should run a 3/4" Daystar spacer on top of the front coil springs to level it out. I don't like the rake it has right now, but have heard mixed opinions concerning this lifts ability to eliminate the factory rake. I want the front within an inch of the rear height but certainly don't want the front end to be higher than the back end. Does anyone out there have a similar set up or experience with this lift? I would really appreciate your opinions so I don't have to do the front end twice. Thanks for your help. This site is awesome

Thanks for the quick response jkpirate. Did you add the 3/4" spacers on the front to level it out?
