My old front bumper did not fair well after a collision with a deer. ($800 just to fix it) . Gave me a good excuse to purchase a new steel bumper. Well I got a Warn 101377 and it is as solid as a rock and just as heavy. I thought from the add it would be lighter, but without the winch it is close to 90 pounds. So my question , do i need to make any adjustments to the suspension or alignment to accommodate the extra weight of the bumper (it will be a while for the winch to be added) Net add to front about 60 pounds. winch adds another 60 pounds or so.
current bumper weighs about 35 pounds. I have a Sahara
suggestions welcome....

You don't need to make any adjustments to the suspension or alignment with the added weight of the bumper. If you would like to get your ride height back, you can add a coil spacer above the front springs to bring you back to the original height.

I am adding spacers. but now trying to decide how big. If i measure the front wheelwell on my jeep and then on a new one mine is 3/4 of an inch lower. Also my jeep is 3/4 of an inch lower measuring the running boards in the front then in the back.
I ASSUME (#@$$%) it is supposed to be level and adding 3/4 spacer will bring everything back to spec. Does anyone know if i am even close to correct??? thanks
