Coil Spacers on a TJ

I have a 4" suspension lift and put a winch and a tire carrier and the Jeep has settled about 1". I was told to get some on the 3/4" coil spacers to put on to make up for the extra weight sag. Has anybody done this and have you done it at home? Is it easy? Do I need any special tools? Did it make a difference?

It's easy just take out the coils, remove the bump stops, slide on the spacers and reinstall the bump stops and coils.

Just remove the control arms and then jack it up so I can remove coil?

No you can use a coil depressor? If you have air tools. But I would remove the shocks first to see if that gives you enough room to pull the coil.

Yeah good point on checking the shocks first. Rent some coil spring compressors from an auto parts store, they usually go for $50 or so and you get a refund when returned. Sway bar links and shocks in the front and rear are all you have to disconnect and rear trac bar. The coils may come out easy but you'll need the spring compressor to get em back in.
