.75" front leveling spacer

2000 wrangler i6. If I install .75 leveling spacers to the front, will I need an alignment?

Probably not

Why would you land on that answer?

Any change in height will result in a direct change in toe, the severity being a function of the height increase. After adding the spacer, you'll be too toed in and will need to lengthen the tie rod to get back to ~1/8" toe in. You'll then need to lengthen the drag link to center the steering wheel. All of that can be done with the tires on the ground using a tape measure in your own garage.

Case in point-About a month after I installed my springs, I added a 3/4" spacer on the front. It does toe it in; too much to ignore. I don't recall how much because it didn't matter. The steering wheel was off by 20° or 30° as well.
It's not a big deal though as it only takes a few minutes to adjust the toe and straighten the steering wheel.
