Different springs?

2003 Wrangler Sport. 4.0 5 speed hard topI did an OME heavy 2 inch coils with Bilstein shocks. Core 4x4 control arms Rough country high clearance crossmember teraflex teralow transfer case. JKS 1.25 bony spacer and motor mounts. I have aftermarket front and rear bumpers winch. After everything was done it came out to 2 1/4 in the front. 3 inch in the rear. It sat low front. High in the rear. The ride really nice. Very little bump steer on crappy roads. After 6 months I decided I wasn’t happy with the nose down look. I added 3/4 daystar front spacers to bring the front up. Centered the axle and steering wheel. What a mistake the added spacers completely changed the ride handling and now have bump steer. What front Springs does anyone recommend to make it even in the front and bring back the nice ride or handling. Or should I remove the front spacers and change out the rear springs.

What specifically about the ride changed after the spacers went in?

Replacing the spacers with an equivalent lift spring won't change anything. This might be a shock issue. What are the up and down travels from normal ride height?

Bump steer shouldn't be happening unless you also messed with the steering or track bar.

Did you align the front after adding the spacers?
