Trying to level off the front

Right now I have a 2.5" TF BB and an ARB bumper on the front. I am planning to put a winch on in the near future. The question is should I put another 1/2" spacer in to make up for the extra weight because the bumper brings it down a little or should I go with a 3" or 3.5" coil?

I had the same problem, but had a friend (bodyguy) that had front springs off his Rubi Unltd that we put on there and it evened it out, so if you know anyone with an Rubi or unltd Rubi that has their stock springs, its worth a shot to see if it works for ya.

You can replace your front pucks with 2.5" coils. (or all 4 pucks with springs if you'd like....)

I had the exact same problem
started with a BB and added a bumper and winch and went down to sagsville quick
I put a pair of polyperformance 3" coils up front and it leveled it out perfectly

The TeraFlex springs I have up front have been a champ holding the weight of my bumper and winch for over a year now. Will most likely pick up their rears when my rear bumper shows up.

I have a rampage rear bumper on it and I have no sag in the rear, its a heavy duty bumper but not weight wise. I'm more concerned with the front because I've hit the bumpstops a few times. So a set of 3" coils should do the trick up front to sit it level?
