New bumper / winch and front end is now lower

I just installed a new body armor front bumper and a 8000 Lb Warn winch both of which are very heavy. Now my front end sags a little. 1/2" lower than with the stock bumper to be exact. I have a 4" suspension lift on the LJ. They make really cheap 5/8" coil spacers (about $25 for the pair). Is this the right route to go? Anyone else had this problem?

I just went through the same thing. New winch made it sag so I threw some spacers on as a temporary fix. Did the job for me.

Also be prepared in the near future to replace the steering gear box. Seems to be common after adding a winch.
