New to Jeep, but curious

I want to keep a stock suspension but was thinking about replacing the front coil springs to give it a small boost but also give it a stance where the front is slightly taller than the back, what all alignment issues, control arm issues, ideas and criticisms can I get? I don't want enough to have to change shocks or anything just get a small boost in the front.........

You might want to consider coil spacers.

Why do you want the front higher than the back may I ask?

I would also agree that a small coil spring spacer would do the trick and would probably need an alignment.

only issue with coil spacers would be alignment, and bumpstop extensions.

Sagging a little in the front and wanted a little more flex in the front.

It will only help with the sagging. It is not going to allow any more flex as this is not restricted by the springs but rather the shocks and bumpstops. You will not need extended bumpstops as you are not installing bigger tires. Also if your springs are sagging then putting in a spacer is only going to restore the vehicle height back to where is was intended to be.

But no problems with restoring the front and not the back?
