Rusty's springs

I bought a jeep with a 2" ProComp lift installed and the front is lower than the back. I've read this is common with ProComp and I tried to correct it with a 3/4" spacer and it's still lower by a 1/2" or so. I'm going to scrap these springs and the spacers and get some new springs from Rusty's Offroad to level it out. Should I get the 2" springs or the 3"? Thanks ahead for any help guys. Also great site I've been lurking for a couple months and figured I'd best get signed up.

The front is always lower then the back. That is the standard rake. Think about what will happen if anyone sits in the back, or if you have any weight back there.

Thanks guys. I called Rusty's and Rusty said the the 3" regular duty springs will work and once they settle they will have no rake. I already have a pretty heavy bumper from Warrior and will be adding a winch here before too long. I also plan on herculinering the inside very soon and will probably leave the back seat out for a little more cargo room. We'll see how it turns out, the springs are cheap so If it don't work out it won't break me too bad. Thanks again fellas for the help.

I am running Rustys 3" up front and 2" with a 3/4 pacer in the rear and sits nice and level.
I have had them on about 3 years now and they have setteled about 1.25-1.5" all around. The springs paired with the Blistine 5100 are a great combo, the ride is great.
This fall I am going to order there HD 3" rears and put the 3/4 Spacers to the front. Also i'll be putting on adjustable lower control arms and a tummy tuck.
