2012 JKU Sahara wheels, tires, coil spacers setup if possible

I have a 2012 Sahara Unlimited I'm a newbie and I love my new Jeep! So I need some help!!!! i just ordered Duratrac 285/70-17s on 17" XD Addicts, I was wondering what size leveling kit i would need for the front? I have no winch, heavy bumper, etc... I was also wondering if it is possible that they make spacers for the rear as well. If possible ,I was thinking of doing 2.5" spacer in front and a 1.5" spacer in the rear end to level it out and give me a bit of a lift. Is something like that possible? If it is possible can i do it with out modifying/changing anything like my shocks, brake lines ect...? Will it change the ride, gas mileage or speedometer? Thank you, thank you, thank you guys so much in advance!!!!!

If your looking for a leveling kit here you go Leveling Kit 1.5" by Teraflex for Jeep Wrangler JK

If you want more lift then what that will give you the 2.5-3 inch suspension lifts are popular among JK owners as they alow you to run up to a 35in tire without needing to replace the drive shaft

As to the leveling kit.. Will your ride change - it shouldn't.. Will it hurt your gas milage - no not really.. Will it change your spedometer - nope..

However let me add that going up in tire size can have some effect on all of those..
