3" front and 2" rear lift

As anybody heard of putting 3" coils up front and 2" in the rear? I think that this will give it a good stance. I know this is going to probably create some hate but only respond if you have heard of this or have somthing positive to say

Ive heard of people putting maybe a half inch or so more up front, check the picture thread. I personally wouldn't do any such thing. It's aerodynamically a bad choice, and performance-wise you're going to give the front another inch to way pointlessly outflex the rear.

haha aerodynamics! As far as the flex goes, does it really matter that much? I mean I don't do much off roading, more or less on the sand dunes if anything

I technically have 4" in the front and 3" in the back. It sits pretty level in my opinion (though the difference in well-wheel space from front to back seems to trick the eye).
First picture is about an hour after the lift was finished. Second is almost 3 months after with tires and painted trim.

thanks man! That's what I was looking for. I have a 2" bb right now and the front still sits lower, I want it to be completely level like your ls

Why do it at all? You'll have to buy two sets of lift kit, and what advantage does it bring you?

how do I have to buy 2 sets of lifts again? I already have pucks in front and rear. I loose the pucks in the front and get 3" coils as well as maybe sway bar links and shocks?

My BB was offset 1/2" more in the front. When I switched to springs I ran front 3/4" spacers for a while before installing my winch. I'm sure the winch sucked some of that up, but I like the more level stance.

I'm a chick, just to clarify.
It sits pretty nice and rides good too. Of course I already want to lift it higher though; like everybody says, it's never tall enough!
