I've searched thoroughly and cant find a thread regarding this (2 door)... JLR on order, and I was wondering if you guys find that the 2 door model has a level stance when stock or do you feel it could use a leveling kit? I plan to keep the stock coil springs but add Daystar 3/4 in lift kit with 35's to maintain the same clearance between tire and fender. other option would be daystar 1.5in level kit with 3/4 rear spacer if we think the JLR has that much rake stock.

Actual suspension thoughts are...
Daystar 1.5 or 3/4 FRONT spacer
Daystar 3/4 REAR spacer
Teraflex 2.1 shocks (0-1.5in of lift)
Teraflex Falcon performance bump stop kit
I'll be adding the Synergy front track bar brace as well for piece of mind
Mopar Bead Lock capable wheels with 35x1250x17 BFG KM3s

Thank you for any insight!

It sits pretty level. If anything, the rear may appear a little lower which may level it out when I add a winch.(Different from my 4Runner that was a little lower in the front..)

It will be mostly level from the factory, maybe a slight reverse rake like Jeff's above. If you put anything heavy on the rear it will be much more noticeable. It was enough that it drove my OCD nuts after I added a heavy rear bumper/tire carrier. Even with steel bumper and winch in the front, and no back seat it wasn't enough to offset it and my Jeep had a saggy butt for a while.

When I installed the new shocks and springs everything leveled out and I didn't need to add any spacers.

Mine is high in the rear because I removed the hardtop and rear seat, moved the spare into the bed and added a winch. Like @pangmaster said, it's going to be pretty level from the factory. From there it depends on what you add or remove.

My 2018 JLR was 1"-1.5" higher in the front when new. I got pulled over for "aftermarket" headlights when I had rear passengers (with stock LED headlights, aimed way too high from the factory). A winch fixed everything.

The 4D sits lower in the front than rear (rake) and the 2D sits higher in the front than the rear (reverse-rake). This is for the 3.6L V-6. I don't know if it is different with other engines.

Awesome guys thank you. Decided to keep the same set up posted with the exception of using the Teraflex 1.5in kit. They state 1.5in for rear and 1in for the front so they’ve identified the same thing about the rear being “saggy” there 4 door kit does the opposite. Should be perfect to run 35s while not loosing any articulation. Thank you!

My JLR sits fairly level as stock. There maybe 1/4" drop in the back, but I haven't measured. It could also be an optical illusion because the fender flares are mounted a bit higher on the front of a Rubicon than on a Sport

My 2 door rubicon sits 1.5" low in back with no added weight back there, bugs me going to have to do something about it.
