2.75" lift x 1.75" lift?

I had planned on getting the Skyjacker 2" BB lift with hydro shocks, but I found a BB lift kit by Daystar it has 2.75" spacers for the front and 1.75" spacers for the rear. on my stock 2000 tj the front sits 2" lower than the rear. would this be a good way to even it out. my tj has the 4.0L auto trans, front belly pan, & gas tank rock guard from the factory. I plan on installing an XRC front bumper, and winch eventually. Thanks for any advice

From what I gather, that's one of the selling points for most lifts out there (that I've come across at least) that they level out the jeeps.

Well, let me say glad this was not a math thread.. I was a bit worried.. as for the lift.. it should help to have less in the back to not make the front slope as much. I think factory is around 1 1/2" lower in the front over the total length.

I'm not sure anyone really answered my question or pointed me in the right direction, but thanks for taking the time to respond. 97Wrangler- I didn't see it on the Daystar website. I found the kit in the JC Whitney catalog that I have. but it's probably on their website too JC Whitney Auto Parts & Auto Accessories - Car, Truck, Jeep, Motorcycle, VW, RV & ATV - Aftermarket Parts & Accessories the kit part # is FCA817778 it costs $161.99, and it comes with the longer bump stops.

i would just go with a 2" at the most, from what i've gathered going any higher tends to start messing things up and its really not worth it in the long run. search the other threads people will tell ya to just save for a suspension lift.

97wrangler- I looked on the jcwhitney & didn't see the kit, but it is in the catolog that I just got yesterday. if you go to JC Whitney Auto Parts & Auto Accessories - Car, Truck, Jeep, Motorcycle, VW, RV & ATV - Aftermarket Parts & Accessories and request a free catalog, it'll be there in 10 days or so, and you'll get a coupon for free shipping too.

Thanks for the input Samsrubicon, but I don't need a full suspension kit, I just need to clear a set of 265/75R16s (31.7x10.5x16). I'll heed the warning though, on staying with-in the 2" lift rule.
