So I recently installed RC 2" lift on my 06 commander but the rear is still a little bit lower than the front. Are there any specific rear shocks you can recommended or rear coil spring?!

Spacciatore;

Now to answer your question, I'm running the 2 inch RC lift as well and I had a similar problem when mine was first installed;

I added Bilstein 5100 rear shocks (Part # 33-225807) and a new set of Hemi-rated rear coil springs - (JustForJeeps Part #'s 52124213AA & 52124214AA)

I have the 4.7L V-8, so the Hemi-rated rear coil springs are slightly heavier then the stock springs.

Rusty's used to sell rear coil springs that were specifically designed to raise the rear an inch or 2 but I'm fairly certain they don't make them any longer, so, they are hard to come by.

The way that I'm set up now, I sit perfectly level.

it is so weird that all these different kits and most suffer from the same problem.. the rear looks like a low rider compared to the front.. weird

My Rough Country 2" lift is level with stock shocks and springs.

If you're looking to bring the rear up, I'd recommend going for Monroe Load Levellers. Their model number 58643 is for an F150, but with a couple washers up top it fits perfectly on a lifted XK and will give you a little extra lift in the rear. With mine on I actually have a bit of a front rake.

I did the Monroe load-leveling. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER!! The ride, along with load-leveling is a dream come true

Almost any aftermarket shocks you put on will be an improvement over the beat-up factory shocks, so, I don't think you have anything to worry about.
