leveling kit. spacers or new springs?

alright guys my jeep is sitting on a 3 inch bds lift and ive got a winch on the front and it drops that front end and i was wanting to level it. so my question is should i swap front springs from 3 inch to a 4 inch or should i get a spacer. my front end is just over and inch lower and i know its not much but i want to get it leveled. any input would be great. thanks

You could do either of those or get new 3" springs with a heavier spring rate to compensate for the weight. That would be your best bet but you'd have to know the spring rate of the BDS springs and how to do the math to calculate what springrate you'd need. I think there's another member on here that knows that stuff. Maybe he'll find this and step in.
