I'd just pick up a set of spacers...but the proper way to offset the difference would be to install slightly stiffer springs in the front I think.

taller springs or stiffer springs if money is no object. if it is....could just do a leveling kit, which basically consists of a 1" budget boost for the front only. If you are interested, I have a ProComp 1" leveling kit that I took off my jeep recently that I would be willing to part with pretty cheap.
