Can i add a leveling kit along with a 2" lift?

so last week i added some hockey pucks to get the the 2" lift done. but now im considering a leveling kit to bring the front up. is that possible, or is that completely fukd up? ive had this thing a few weeks, so still trying to find my way around some of this stuff. also considering a 1 1/4" body lift so i can fit 33's. what are your thoughts. thanks! 97 sahara.

The body lift will fit 33's. I remember hearing that you shouldn't stack budget boosts, not sure why, but you can order a larger bb just for the front to level you out.

if you want to bring the front up, why not do it with springs? if you taylor your spring rate and spring length to the weight you're running on the front end, it will sit level, won't bottom out and you'll be happy

you call some spring manufacturers and ask them the spring rate, and the uncompressed spring length. you also ignore "lift height" marketing information.
