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

Poverty/College Budget 2004 TJ 2.5" RC coils, 1.25" BL, M95 shocks 4.5" up 4.75" down travel front, 4.7" up, 5.3" down rear

Live around Philly or south Jersey? Come wheeling or wrenching! Look in here \/\/\/

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.
