Shocks and struts 06 wk

I'm currently in the process of replacing shocks and front struts on my 06, but had a few questions.
1. I have a 2" lift, I've already gone with the Monroe 646s (load levelers) for the rear because I don't wheel the jeep so I won't need the extra travel from the 643s. Which front struts do I need to keep the front from raking?
2. Does bilstein make a height adjustable shock for the front of the 06 wk that can be used with the 2" lift?
3. I understand the appeal of the Monroe LL 643 for lifted jeeps because it gives more lift, but it seems to me that it transfers the load of the vehicle weight to the shocks instead of the coils, which would wear the shocks out much faster. Any thoughts?
Thanks!!

Bilstein 5100s are adjustable form .75 to 2 ins. Only ones i know that are like that. They are back ordered so might have to wait awhile. Could also go with 4600s which are 3/8s lift and shim up the front with top spacers.. they are .25 each of lift to level out the front too.

Re: Shocks and struts 06 wk

Yea I have had a hard time searching for the height adjustable 5100s for the wk. ive seen them for dodge rams and toyotas and others, but not for the wk. thats why i asked.
what about monroe fronts? im thinkin that just new struts in general will raise it back up a little bit
