The jeep naturally has a nose down stance (rake). This is to help compensate for when the rear has passengers or gear loaded in it. The suspension then levels out. Trucks are the same. If you look at a truck the rear will have a little more clearance than the front. this is for when the bed is loaded or a trailer is attached to level out the suspension.

You dont however want a hugh dramatic difference like if you installed 2in springs on the front and 4in springs on the rear.

Have an 06 LJ. Just removed the old 3.5" RE LA springs, arms and swapped in Metalcloaks set up. Jeep is definitely softer on road and logging roads. IT may feel squishier as now the rear end is not bouncing all over.
Front bumper has Warn 9.5 ti, rear has swing tire and jerry can wet up when needed. Jeep sits about 3/8" lower than before but a much smoother ride.
