3/4" coil spring spacers needed?

I finally decided to just build my 02 Overland and not buy a built one. I have a 4.5" lift and will be getting the proto fab front and rear bumper which should clearance enough for 33's. The protofab bumpers are pretty damn heavy and I'm gonna assume they will bring my lift height down about a 1/2" but with 33's I really don't want to loose any lift height. Should I just add 3/4" spacers from Kevin's Offroad to bring it back up? Anyone running heavy bumpers that had some sagging? BTW I have the Teraflex 4.5" springs If so, how much? I just don't want to install the lift and then have to go back in and install the spacers. I want to do everything at once. If I do need to go this route, anyone out there got some 3/4" spacers they're willing to sale? I also don't want to go too tall with my JKS short arms. I'm afraid my ride is already gonna be rough, going taller will only make that worse.

I have Tera springs and an ARB front bumper. Believe it or not, no sag. Tera's springs carry the highest spring rate out there at that lift height. If anything, you may want to add the OME 10 MM spacers. Also depends if you want to retain the front rake.

I want the vehicle to sit level and not have the factory rake. Are you running the OME 10mm spacers? Front AND rear? What size tire are you running?

I have heavily trimmed my fenders front and rear, so you really cannot use my WJ as a guide. I run 10 mm's up front and 3/4" rear to compensate for cargo/full size spare, etc..

If you're that particular, you need to install and just see what happens. Too hard to e-guess how your jeep will sit with various equipment. Plus, it's really a quick job to throw some spacers in later, if you even need them.

I kinda figured I would probably just need to wait and see. Your correct about how easy it is to add spacers but I'm just lazy and hate doing things twice. I figured I might get lucky and find someone with the same springs and bumpers on 33's to compare to.

I just looked into the OME 10mm spacers and those are crazy cheap. I will definately take that route if I need a little extra lift after the bumpers go on. They add about 1/2" which should be perfect with the added weight of the bumpers. Once I get the lift, bumpers and tires all installed I will report back on if I needed the spacers and if I need the 10mm OME spacers or Kevin's 3/4" spacers.
