BDS 3" front coils and 2" rear

I bought a 2004 Rubicon with 62,000 miles a couple months back, and I am now looking to lift it. I have been researching and decided I want to go with BDS coils. The jeep has about an inch of rake to it. I know that the rake helps when you have a load on the back but I hardly ever haul a heavy load and I hate the way 4x4's look with it. I was planning on purchasing a BDS 2" lift. But I have been considering putting 3" coils in the front with 2" coils in the rear. My question is, will the standard 2" lift eliminate the rake or do I need to buy 3" front springs?

I went with 2" springs front and rear on my TJ and added the 3/4" daystar spacers on the front. It did have a rake without the extra upfront.
