Exclamation Important!!! Please help!!! Leveling idea!!!

Ok, this is probably the most important post i will have. I have a 2011 2-door Rubicon. I think it is ok now (lift wise) but with the hard top on I HATE THE RAKE STANCE!!!!!!!!

I did a little looking around on quadratec and I had an idea. I like the look of the Teraflex Leveling Kit, but I dont want any lift. So what if I get 1" front coil spacers? If I do that will I need to do anything else to just get the front up a little? My goals for this is to get the most inexpensive way to make it as level possible with the least modifications.

PLEASE HELP!!!

.75 inch spacers are commonly used on TJs for leveling the front. It would be the same for JKs. A 1 inch puck would suffice as well. Got any pictures of the rake?

The books didn't take away any rake from the rubi.
