spacer lift question

I have a 2003 jeep wrangler tj with a 4" rough country lift and was wanting to put like a 2" spacer on the front to level it out. Do i need longer shocks??

Yes, you'll more than likely need longer shocks.

if the front sagged because of a winch and you only go back to 4" with the spacers you donīt need longer shocks. the shocks that came with the RC suspensions are ok for that.

They are safe on oem size springs. I've read of several others using them to level the rake w/o any issues. I'd stay as minimal as possible, just depends on what it'll take. If it requires too much may need new springs.

I wonder since the RC lift kit came with new coil springs if those spacers will fit it. Do they change in width or anything

The RC springs are just like stock, just 4" longer. They do not change anything at all.

The lip on most spacers fits in the inside diameter of the coil which I believe is about same as oem coils.
