instead of adding a leaf you could use an "add-a-leaf." I got about 1.5" of lift from add-a-leafs (for a jeep CJ) in the rear of my SPUA hardtop sami. I was trying to even it out after installing the calmini 2" s/r, which left the front about an inch higher than the rear.
The add-a-leaf will make the front springs stiffer, which will have the opposite effect from longer shackles: It will improve your steering response and handling in general.
The CJ add-a-leafs from JC Whitney are under $50 shipped.
