1 3/4" spacer install, also adjust LCAs, UCAs, track bar, drag link???

Should i loosen all these bars before installing my spacers and then lengthen them to a length that they all sit at naturally once the extra height is given to the front? It seems bad to me to leave them all the same length as they currently are...as some videos and posts that i have googled suggest doing.

only adding spacers in front to level.

i know you are "supposed to sit lower in the front" but i guess because of my winch and bumper, and not having a hardtop, my front end sits a full 2.5" lower than the rear. i honestly hate it everytime i look at it and i feel i need to level it out

the distribution of weight is the problem. that is best fixed by using springs with the spring rate and length you need. clearly what you have now is too soft & too short, since it sank 2.5". add longer, stiffer springs to solve the problem. all the spacers are going to do is reduce the amount of space you have to compress the springs...they won't solve the root of the problem.
