That would probably work to level the vehicle out but that is really counter productive. You are adding unneeded weight to a vehicle whos offroad capabilities are much aquired from its light weight. Even then you would still have coil springs with bad rates for the weight of the vehicle. I would go with your original plan to keep it lighter and then upgrade you springs correctly.

This is what you need. Spacers might correct the ride stance but they are not going to change the fact that you have bad spring rates for the extra weight on the Jeep. Also adding spacers to lift springs is not a good idea.

gsellars I already have springs. I plan on changing eventually but not right now

They can be used in the rear too. If you have coil spacers back there, which I'm pretty sure you do if you're posting in this section.

OhSixTJ Easy to fix with spacers. I used some up front to help after the bumper and winch.

lift height balance

wanting to order front and rear bumpers for my TJ. Currently on 4" SL. Wanted to order the Metalcloak aluminum frame built bumper because of the weight reduction. Then I was looking at rear bumpers with tire carriers. I know weight reduction would be good but will a 20lb bumper + winch = a 50lb bumper + 50lb tire carrier + full size spare??

Would the steel metalcloak bumper allow for better lift balance or would it be an easy fix to balance the front and rear height even with the weight difference from front and rear?
