Undecided about which lift to get

So right now I have a 2in rc spacer lift on my 07 wk. I would like to go higher so I bought a 3 in lift but only for the front. I'm undecisive about putting it on because i was originally just going to put my 2in in the front into thwack somehow but I'm now Nervous that the front of my truck will be a lot higher then the back. I really do want to just take this lift out and get a 4in but I don't want to spend 2,000$ can someone help me out

The RC lift front spacer isn't made to fit on the rear. I'm curious as to what 3" lift you bought also.

If you want a 4 inch lift for your WK you're gonna spend some jack.

If you want a quality lift at 3+ inches your best bet is to modify (add to) an Old Man Emu suspension set-up. Nowhere near 2 grand but even this is likely gonna put you north of 700-800 dollars.

the three inch is a heavy metal lift. I figured the 2 in wouldn't work in the back, thanks for the help!

Yeah........I wouldn't install that ebay lift on your Jeep. You get what you pay for and the quality of those components would be dubious at best.

I don't think I have ever heard of that lift. But it sounds sketchy. I wouldn't do it. It's not worth the risk. Go for something more well-known. Like the OME or even a BB lift like RRO or Rough Country or something.
