New rough country lift

Posted these in general discussion thread too so sorry for the repeat if you saw it already. But just got back my XK with RC 2” lift with new shocks/struts and super happy with it. Gained 3.5” in front form the center hub and 2” in rear for nice level look. Click image for larger version

Looks great, cool rims too!

So does the 2" lift automatically give the front an extra 1.5" to counter the rear that's higher ready or was that an extra spacer added to the 2" front lift?

Sorry Phil, I’ve been away for awhile. But all I did was the RC lift, no extra spacers in front.

Shock/strut combo?

I've been meaning to bug you, what shocks and struts did you go with? I think your Commander sits perfect! If you've got part numbers that would be amazing, I'm about to install my RC lift and definitely want to replace my shocks/struts at the same time but have been on the fence about what to pull the trigger on. Leaning towards Bilstein 5100's all around if possible. Any info would be appreciated, thanks!!!:
