Poly spring spacers on suspension lift

I have a 4" suspension lift and the front end sags alittle. Adding the 3/4" poly spacers make that much difference? Has anybody done it? Is it something you can install at home?

3/4" spacer will lift it 3/4". Pretty common mod with lifts to even things out. I actually would rather have my front end sag rather than the rear. I see a lot of Jeep that sag in the rear and it does not look good to me, but that is just my opinion.

The TJ has a natural rake towards the front. Many suspension lifts do wind up maintaining that same stance. As indicated a lot of people do add a 3/4 - 1" spacer to level it. As a matter of fact i Just put on a 2" BDS and the front rake seems more noticable than it was at stock height. I just got a 1" spacer that will be going on soon. IMHO, I am the other way around. Jacked up in the rear on a Jeep does not look good.

If you are really bothered by it you can buy a set of JKS ACOS to toss up front and that way you can fine tune it to the height you want. I have them on the front of my LJ due to te huge bumper and winch really sagging down the front just haven't gotten around to adjusting them.

Kinda like JP said, I plan on adding them to compensate for the weight of the bumper and winch I plan to add to the front. And its a pretty straight forward install.

would adding height in there mess with the drivetrain at all? when I put my 4" suspension lift on i had to drop the transfer case, so if I was to put 1 or 2" spring spacers on top of that to make up for the weight of new bumpers would I have to adjust anything else?
