Front Spacers

Hey everyone,
I finally got my RE 3.5 SF for my TJ. Going to put it on this weekend, I also bought some .75 spacers for the front. I am going to be putting on a winch in the future. Do you think I need them? Everythng I have read is to put the spacers in to keep the front from sagging too much. Since I will have the Jeep tore apart, should I just put them in?

Thanks.

I ended up using them. I have the 3.5-inch coils and a winch.

I have a 4" lift and once I installed my winch the front sagged. I ended up putting .75" spacers to level it up. The .75" spacers raised my front bumper 1.5". IMO, you should go ahead and add them while you have it apart. You could always take them off.

x2 - add them now. I used JKS variable spring adapters...dialed it in perfect. I needed more than .75" inches..more like 1.5"
