Bought a 97 TJ. it has a teraflex BB. I'm pretty certain it is the 1.5". It sits 2" lower in the front than the rear. I'd like to mount my winch (rough country 12k) but think I should put on some HD coils so it wont have as much rake. The rake isnt really I big deal but I dont like the way it looks. Should I try to find a HD coil and keep the spacer or get some OME HD coils with 1.5" lift?
Any suggestions, advice or comments will be greatly appreciated!

I've got a full set of ome hd tj 2" coils that will like be up for auction on the bay soon. The natural rake of a jeep should be about .5-.75" lower in the front. The ome coils helped to get me back to that, but to sit dead flat I had to bump the front up another .75". I also have a winch.

I doubt I'd really notice the .75" but 2" mine has makes it look terrible and im sure adding a 100lb winch wont help lol! I'd eventually like to have some sway bar disconnects but im afraid it'll rub bad with the rake it has now.

If you lift then you will need to adjust your bumpstop length accordingly. That'll keep tires off of fenders and protect shocks from bottoming out.

Do you think if a got the 1.5" OME HD coils and kept the spacer itd sit to high up front? Would I need to get a adjustable track bar or anything?
