just want to level frt - spring spacers ?

on my 97 TJ with 2 inch spacer lift- the frt is still just a tad lower then rear.
Is there any way to just stick a spacer in the frt springs. dont need much.
I remember as a kid these rubber spacers and screw in spring spreaders. any idea for a bout a inch lift ?

P. Scott --- also where could I order such a thing ?

why not install V8 ZJ springs and avoid the coil bind issues?

+1. I did this a while back and liked it. I got about an inch over the 2" BB in front. The uncompressed spring is the same length as a TJ spring but much stiffer so it doesn't sag as much. It rides better IMO and I don't have a winch.

Before w/ 2" BB:

After w/ ZJ springs:

Wheel. Break/Test. Repair/Upgrade. Repeat
