Leveling it out.

I have a 2004 Rubicon that I have installed a 2" spring spacer kit on and it still sits lower in the front by about 2". Is it possible to install a 4" spacer on the front only to level it out? I plan to make them out of aluminum.

I would put some 3" springs up front instead, and ditch the 4" spacer idea.

A TJ is supposed to have a little rake towards the front to compensate for the gear you would load into the back for a trip.

Climbing steep hills with the front end in the air and the rear end weighted down is not a good feeling. I've done it, then promptly removed my leveling spacers.

Yeah I was thinking of springs as well, just trying to save some dough.
