2010 rubicon unlimited

Does Chrysler make a heavier front spring for this jeep that would level out the front end. The rake shows so bad on the unlimited that is driving me crazy. Not really wanting to jump into a full lift yet, as I just went through that with my other jeep.

They make heavier duty coils, but you may already have them. If you don't already have them and you add them, you may end up overcorrecting the rake anyway. This was my plan, but I think I'm going to approach it differently now given some of the threads I've seen recently on heavy duty coils. The amount of the boost is somewhat unpredictable.

A more certain option is to figure out how much of a rake you have by parking on a level surface and then measuring from the bottom of the front and rear of a rock rail to the ground. Then choose an appropriate front spacer that can be inserted on top of your existing coils to level the Jeep.

Here's one that's 1/2".

Here's one that's 3/4".

Here's one that's 1".

In my view, level looks best, but overcorrected looks worse than just leaving the rake in place.

I have been through the lift thing before, just really want to level it. Do you think with the leveling let say one inch will you have to add an adjustable track bar to the mix to recenter the axle?

I very much doubt it. As far as I know, the JKers that do leveling kits don't need to do any other mods to accomodate them. The TeraFlex Leveling Kit for example actually provides 2" worth of pucks for the front and 1" worth of pucks for the rear.

You're talking about doing even less--just 1/2", 3/4", or 1" pucks up front and that's it. For that, I think nothing further should be required.
