2WD front end dip fix

I'm a new Jeep owner and I have the 4-door X 2WD. The front end is considerable lower than the rear end. Has anyone tried to put in a front end lift to level it out? I don't want to change the tires (yet), but I'd like to level out the look of the jeep.

I will guess you could put some coil spacers in there to bring it up a bit.

I would suggest spacers up front too. How much rake do you have?

I haven't measured, but I bet it's around 2-3 inches.

That looks perfect. It seems like a 3/4" lift won't be enough though. Maybe I'm underestimating how much of an effect it will have?

That 3/4" spacer is for someone like me that has added an aftermarket bumper and winch. The weight of those drops my front end down about that much. You should look for a 2" spacer lift kit.

Jeep makes one too! They are called front spring isolators. Just stack another set on top of the ones there. They are about $6 each at your local dealer!

Wow thanks I didnt know Jeep made them. Im probably going to be picking up the 2.5" Skyjacker lift and I was going to grab those spacers too, but I'll get the ones from Jeep instead.
