GTrom Figures, I did the search again, this time several came up!
I checked out the air lift helper springs, that looks like a great way to go.

Thanks all!

sparky Rubicon Express RE1333 is a 3/4" spacer for a TJ.

bjtoth I put these air bags on for towing my boat.

Suspension lift kits, body lifts, leveling kits, shocks and other 4x4 products - Jackit.com

No compressor or tank, keeping it under $100.

5 psi unloaded returns me to stock

hellhound94 I didn't really look very long but I did find a TeraFlex 1.5" Spacer Lift for TJ's. It's in the Quadratec catalog as P.N. 16190.007.

Also, in the 4WD Hardware catalog, I spotted a Daystar 3/4" lift listed as P.N. KJ09107BK.

Apparently they're out there. May just take a little diggin' to find exactly what you're looking for.

GTrom Thanks everyone!

I will keep an eye out for the smaller spacers, since it isn't too bad loaded, just a little off

I did consider the air bags, but that is a lot of extra money for very little gain.
If I could find the same height springs with the higher spring rate, I'd be set, it appears that these are setting right into the higher rate with the rack on.

Of course, if I do go topless, I'll be close anyway!!!

jwm1986 Ditch the hard top for a soft top and it'll all work out! But yeah, check ebay. I got 3/4" spacers off there for like 20 shipped. I'm about to take them back out tho I need some taller ones.

adamag25 You could get a set of air bags that go into the springs. Since you do not always have the full weight on the rear a stiffer/taller spring may not give the result you want when unloaded. The air bags are easy because you can pump them up to give the added support when you are weighted down and then just air them down a bit for normal driving.

Vanimal00000 Having a 1" taller spring doesn't necessarily mean it'll balance out. The spring you get could have a stiffer spring rate then the ones you have now, causing it to be higher then intended. Unless you don't mind it, it probably would be too noticeable.

1" +/- coil spacers?

Does anybody make 1" spacers (approx) for the rear springs on the TJ?
The rear sags a bit too much when I have the homemade rack installed with fuel and all the goodies!
Either spacers or maybe go with taller springs?
I installed the 2 1/2" lift, maybe 3 1/2" springs for the back?
What are you thoughts?

Thanks in advance for all your help, I promise I won't whine...
