98 XJ w/AAL rear & front w/old spacers - sitting about 1.5" lower than rear..

As mentioned, I've got new AALs in the back and old spacers on original coils in the front. The rear sits at about 21" and the front around 19.5". This is my daily driver, so I don't want to/can't afford anything too crazy right now, but eventually when I get a new vehicle I do plan to put new 3" leafs in the back and new coils up front. What I'm wondering now is given how it currently sits (front lower than rear), what is my best option to level things out without having to do much else (Adj. LCAs, etc)? Also, I'm not really sure if I go the route of new, taller spacers over the original coils or if there is a coil someone can recommend that will put the Jeep to the same level all around. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Install a 1.5" coil spring spacer. The coils need to be removed to install a spacer. Spacers are about $45 and new 3" taller coils are about $100.

Thanks. I'm wondering if it would be smarter to do 3" coils now knowing that eventually I'm going to go bigger in the back? And then if need be I could add spacers over those coils eventually. So do you think given where I sit in the back now the 3" coils will level it out? Are LCAs necessary with that set up?
