Installed 2inch lift now front sits higher

Over the weekend I installed a RC 2inch lift and now my commander sits .75 to a inch higher in the front. Wondering If I bought new rear shocks that where for a 2 inch lift if it would give me a extra inch to level it with the front ? Any help would be much appreciated

Shocks won't add lift however you can add a 1/2 inch lift spacer in the rear which will help level out the Jeep

Where can I find some rear spacers I see you have a 1/2 inch that's what I would need unless I can find a additional 3/4 inch rear spacer.

Check out the F-150 Monroe load levelers. After swapping 'em in, I gained about .75 inches of lift in the rear.
Here is an install thread:

I meant to say 1/2 inch rear spacer not 1/4 inch. I got mine from Matt who is a member of the forum. I'll edit my post to fix it to say 1/2 inch spacer

I emailed RC about this and they are saying give it a little time and the front will settle witch doesn't make sense because its a steel coil spacer and nothing would need to settle in.

Did you install the longer version of the Monroe's ? And you had a 2 inch lift correct ?

Same Issue

I have the same issue with my lift. I measured the spacers and found the front spacers to be 1/4" taller for the front than the back, which should level the jeep. Instead i get about 1" higher in the front. its been this way for about a year and hasn't caused any issues, but now im getting sick of the way it looks. if I cant figure a way to fix it i will probably take the lift out all together. I didnt measure before i put the lift in to see if the jeep was level either.

Has anyone had this problem and figured out a solution?

I have the same issue with an '06 I just bought (RC 2" lift)! Sits maybe an inch high in the front. Any ideas on a fix would be greatly appreciated.
