Would stronger springs help?

I have added the Rough Country 2" budget lift and new tires to accommodate (Kumho Road Venture a/t 265/70 r17) for the lift. That's what the recommendations were for this lift. But the rear end looks to be sitting lower than the front now. Oh also, new Bilstein 5100 series shocks in the rear as well. Would a new heavy duty spring like Old Man Emu help? Thanks for any input!

I would e-mail Rough Country. They might offer you a leveling kit or tell you exactly what to do..

Thanks. They weren't much help over there. However, Rusty's was very helpful and told me my springs weren't meant to have been lifted like that and the ones they offered would fix the problem. They are heavy duty and 2" taller which would also help me with towing even though they will probably be a little rougher ride. But I am still young and I can live with that. Thanks for your help!

If you get the Rusty's springs I would be interest in know how they ride. Had a set in my WJ and they worked well but were a little stiff.

So I am stuck and in need of some help making a decision. I can go with OME coils that are ride height or the Rusty's which have a 2" lift to them. The 2" would make my jeep a 4" lift if I leave the spacers in. The problem with that is I don't think my month old Bilstein 5100 series shocks work with that much lift. I could take out the spacers but seeing that I just bought them I really don't want to take them out unless necessary. Any suggestions?
