New Winch weight issues....

I bought a Warn 9.5ti winch a while back and have noticed that the extra weight from the winch causes me to sit a little lower then before. What are my options to gain back that height? Keep in mind that with in the next two weeks I am planning on finally adding my 1.25 BL as well as a MML. Thanks for any advice.

3/4 inch urathane spacers

Lots of companies make urathane spaces that go on top of your front springs to get the 3/4 of an inch you loose with a winch. personally I kinda like the "rake" it gives to my jeep. With a full tank of gas mine levels out

The above post is my opinion and I have no facts to prove it... :)~

I added some .75 spring spacers myself. Not to hard of a mod. It'll take you a few hours, but well worth the effort. Keep in mind I already have my desired lift and spacers will add additional height however its not really advised to add spacers then stack more spacers on top.
