Rear spring perch problem

Hello,
So I currently have a 3" lift on my tj and am going to upgrade to get a sye and sv ds, I'm going to move up to 4 inch springs. My question is should I just get 4" springs for the rear or get a correction plate bracket that says will raise my tj an inch and a half? I like the bracket since it will correct the angle but will my back be too high with the 3" springs in the rear and 4" springs in the front ? Also I want the 4" rear springs more but how bad will the perch be with the axle rotated?

What should I do?
And ease don't say to cut and re weld new brackets because I don't have access to that, my only two options are those above

Get the relocation brackets and see how you like it with the 3" springs. You can always change the front to 4" if it's too low. I really liked the improved ride that I got when I installed the relocating brackets. One of the best mods I made.

Why not cut off your stock perches and relocate them? Other than some welding wire and a touch of gas and electricity, its free.
