Front end sag after winch/bumper install

I have read several posts about spacers and lifts to level my JK after adding 225 lbs to the front end. My first question is what if I don't level it? Will driving on and offroad with the low front end damage anything? Also, what brand coil spacer is recommended? 3/4" should do, yes? Would it be better to just get longer coils? I don't have any lift kit and would like to hold off lifting for a while. Thanks for any advise for this NOOB!

The JK already has a natural rake to it stock (down in the front). So the .75" spacers are only going to get you back to stock.

You need to decide how much wheelin your going to do and research the 2.5" and up lifts. Most of the kits do a good job of leveling the Jk out, Some have still had to add the .75" spacers to make up for the winch and bumper.

Goodluck and enjoy!
