Question RE: JKUR Spring/Shock Upgrades, 0-2"

Trying to proof some data re: stock suspension to get a better feel for where I want to go upgrade wise - Jeep in question is a '12 JKUR, front springs are "18s", rear springs are "59s."

Spring Height -
Front, no-load: 18 in.
Front, compressed: (I can only guess about 6 or so inches)
Rear, no-load: 14.25 in.
Rear, compressed: ~4.75 (?)

Shock Length -
Front, extended: 22.75 in.
Front, collapsed: 14.5 in.
Rear, extended: 23.25 in.
Rear, collapsed: 15 in.

I updated Firefox...lost my very eloquent first version of this post. It seems like my ride height is pretty well in the middle of the springs range. I'm also looking for spring rates. I'd like to keep in the middle of the range at static ride height were I to upgrade...thus my interest in spring rates, lengths, etc...just want to be able to calculate where I am now and extrapolate where I need to be. Incidentally, it seems like you can probably grab an extra 1-2 inches of suspension travel for about the same compressed length if you upgrade the shocks.

Anyhow, I appreciate the help. I pulled this info from a few different places and I know it's not as tight as it could be.
