Uneven lift.

I recently measured from the bottom of my flares to the ground and I have a 2 inch difference between the front and rear. The rear measured 36" and the front is 34" with a 2" bb and 31's. What would be the best way to correct this?

Did you measure the rear of the flares? The rear flare is just about 2" shorter on the back side as the tub is a little higher back there. Try measuring from the center or the front of the flares.

my front end sagged a bit, once i got new shocks it helped raise the front. the factory shocks were pretty shot and caused a good deal of sag.

do you have spacers at all 4 coils? if so then you will get the same slant as a stock TJ higher in the back and lower in the front close to 1.75" or there abouts.

Yes, they are on all four. I don't recall seeing a slant before I put the pucks and tires on.

Could I just get a set of 2" lift springs to even them out?

You could take the pucks off the top of the rear springs, that would even it out.
