When I put the 4' springs in I also put .75 spacers up front only due to the fact that my winch will be here next week it will go in right away. Just a little prework but wait until you get some time on the springs before doing additional installs. You should also take into account if you will be putting an after market tire carrier and heavier bumper as that will also level things out in the back.

I have the same lift you have just bought. I also have bumpers and a dayton 9000lb winch on the front. I added 1.5" spacers to make up for the weight. When I measure the wheel gap from my tire to my fender flare it measures 8.5" front and rear, but it appears to sit low in the back. I guess it is an optical illusion but I do not like it and will be adding a 1" block in the rear to make it look better.
I guess what I am saying is that my jeep sits level when you measure it but when you look at it she seems to be smuggling a load of illeagal aliens in the back... I can post pictires tomorrow if you would like, that is of the jeep not my illeagles...

I agree, see what you will end up with first. Every Jeep is different, even with the exact same parts.
