Offsetting the counter weight
After reading 50 + threads and still at a lost i was wondering if i could get a little help. Currently I'm running a 2" zone lift on my 2005. Due to my personal preferences of having a "level" jeep I have added the 1" leveling spacer atop the 2" spacer up front. I have since added a Warn VR winch to the front and next weekend my front and rear bumpers are to be picked up. Since I'm going from a 16 gage bumper to a .188" wall bumper up front I'm assuming that I will sag a little. My thought are to pull the spacers and leveling kit (actual numbers are 1.75" + .75") and replace them with a 3" spring. Is this a typical solution? has anyone gone this way? If so how was your outcome. Don't know if this matters ut just have a set of 31's on. Your input is greatly appreciated!

If you dig through my old threads there's one on v8 zj springs up front with a bb in the back which is essentially what your looking at. In that thread a guy posted a picture of his rig with the set up your talking about. Bumpers, winch, 3inch coils and a budget boost. I'm on mobile so can't link ya

That is what I did on my previous set up.

The winch, plate, and bumper made my front end sag pretty good when I was running a 2" budget boost. I swapped the stock front springs and 2" spacer out with 3" springs.
