Lets assume I know nothing because that isn't far from the truth.

My jeep is not a DD, it is a toy. I will not be rock crawling but this isn't a mall crawler either.

When I bought the jeep a few months ago it already had a spacer lift, and 32x11.5 tires which were nearly new and I am not interested in changing tires at all.

It also had a Body Armor front bumper. I added a BA rear bumper and some BA rocker side guards, mainly because I like the way they look, not because I plan on actually needing them to work, but you never know.

Recently I decided to add a winch to the front which was another 100lbs.

As you might guess, now the front is sagging a little.

One other bit of info,,, I bought some Bilstien 5100's for 0-2" lift and they are still in the box.

So here comes the question. What should I do to bring the front up? Keep in mind that I'd like to use those 5100's and I'm not interested in lifting the jeep to the point I have to start changing all kinds of parts. I don't ever plan to disconnect sway bars or anything like that.

Would tossing out the spacers and just getting a new set of springs be the best answer? I'm not limited on $$$ but I want it as simple as possible just for the sake of being simple, not cheap.

I would take out the spacers in front and get some HD 2" springs. OME is a good choice, but make sure to get the HD springs, they are harder to compress and designed to have heavy things on the front.

Looks like you can only get it in 1.5" HD so I would just get the non HD 2" and add a spacer leveler up fronthttps://www.quadratec.com/products/16090_4XX_PG.htm
