I also did the zone lift, that's how they come, ridiculously raked 4ward..
they wont settle out, I put the 1" spacer in front a year ago and I have a perfect stance imo

I forgot to add that you may want to wait a bit longer and give your new lift springs time to settle.
I have a few pics to share of my battle with levelness. When I swapped out my BB for a 3" lift a few years ago, the rear end sat pretty high. I measured and cut a BB spacer down to 1.5" to level the Jeep. But, it was empty. First trip out after the spring settled, and loaded up with gear, I got this.
Not too long after, I swapped out the low quality 3" springs for a very popular name brand 3" springs, and swapped the front 1.5" spacer for a 3/4" spacer. A bit of a rake towards the front when empty. Just fine with me.
Couple more years in the books and I think my springs have continued to settle just a bit more. This pic is of the Jeep loaded with tools, gear, and fuel. I think I may take the 3/4" spacer out of the front.
I would give your springs a little more time to settle out before adding anything just yet.
I'm not to worried about the leveled look much anymore these days.

@all...i bought/installed the ZONE 3" lift which came with new springs. I assumed that the springs in this package were designed to create the proper level front and back. I'll recheck my height this evening as I just realized that the 33/35 was my starting height. Also, my rear bumper (37lbs heavier than the front) includes a tire carrier and I didn't factor in the weight of the tire in the height because i don't currently have it on the vehicle.
To be continued...

LEVELING KIT vs. COIL SPACERS
just finished my 3" lift. i have a good 1.5" difference in height between the front and back (33.5" front / 35" rear). I have new front and rear bumpers in route. they are about the same weight but i'll also be adding a winch (87lbs). Should i level her out with a front leveling kit or front coil spacers?
