leveling with 2.5 teraflex already installed

I have a 2.5 inch teraflex BB lift and i am adding a front bumper and winch. What is the best way to level? do I have to replace the exsisting lift or can you add a 1-1.5 hockey puck.? Can anyone please clarify what needs to be done to level?
thanks

I honestly would not keep stacking pucks on top of the 2.5" pucks you already currently have. The best solution would be to actually get the 2.5" front springs. They would compensate for the extra weight of the bumper and winch.

I have the Teraflex 2.5 inch coil lift and am very happy with it. Attached are one pic about a week old empty and a second after the front bumper, winch and a weeks worth of heavy stuff in the back loaded in. Like any coil it is going to sag some when loaded up heavy. The good news for me is the 35s don't rub even with max load and the rig returns to a good height after the expedition is done and the gear unloaded (pic 3).

My LoD front bumper is about 90 lbs and the winch 60. I've provided the pics to give you an idea of what the 2.5 inch Teraflex coil springs gave me in height and the changes under three types of load. I would follow the advice in post 2 above. Your stock springs will sag more.

I am actually doing the install today. I guess we'll know for sure what needs to be done afterwards. I'm thinking a spring lift, will wait and see.
nice pics, love the roof rack
