Stacking Coil Spacers?

Hi,

I have a budget boost (skyjacker) with 2" coil spacers on my '06 TJ.
my jeep is about 1.5"-1.75" lower at the front because of my stainless steel front bumper.
is it a good idea to put some other 1"-1.75" spacers on top of the 2" spacers at the front?
i found these spacers on ebay and in the description they say that 2 of them can be stacked at the front.
is that ok and safe?

i think there is enough space for some more spacers above my front springs.


yes i know that some other coil springs would be better, but i´m still on warranty and i want to change as less things as possible on my tj.

thanks in advance for your answers.

it´s only until my warranty is gone. then i´ll buy a new suspension...

are there 3" to 4" coil spacers available? then i wouldn´t have to stack them...

biggest i've seen is 2.25" but i've heard people talk of 3" BB. but i wouldn't go taller than a 2.25" spacer. then you should go for new coils. will they void your warranty for new coils?

adding some more 1"-1.5" spacers will be ok for my dealer. if i intall some new coils i will voi the warranty for the whole suspension.

hell no. it is too unstable.

do not stack them. my advice is to live with what you have until you can afford the lift kit you want.

If you're just trying to level it out then why don't you put smaller spacers in the rear? It'd be much safer than stacking spacers in the front.
