So far they seem to have a slight rake. A 1” spacer (leveling kit) should easily fix that on the cheap. ?

I would put money on it being raked. I've been wondering how much rake and if I will be able to live with it before I do a lift/level.

Most vehicles this boxy have a factory rake.

Really, they probably have to. They need to max out MPGs and that helps. Towing is an issue too.

How complicated are those to install?

Level is self explanatory. Raked is front end lower than rear.

Ohhhh.... My younger dog is raked. The older one is level. But the younger one weighs 73 lbs and the older one weighs 53 lbs. I wonder which one gets better mileage.

I like a little rake, it makes a vehicle not look like a dog with plugged glands when the vehicle is carrying weight.

It’s not very complicated. The coilover (suspension springs/shocks) is removed and a small ring is placed on top of the coilover. You don’t want do go too big with a spacer. My opinion is 2” max, but I wouldn’t put one that big on my vehicles.
A Google search will bring up thousands of videos on exactly what it is and how it works.

After seeing that Jeep pic above and reading the dog analogies I may just leave it as is ? I’ll be pulling a trailer on our getaways so, might be the right call.
