If you know your gonna be lifting it, just save.

My jeep rides terrible right now, and instead of buying new shocks, I'm just saving for a lift.

Even though the price is fair for those items, you will be replacing them again if your intentions are to lift within a year. The shocks will be too short, the u bolts questionable, the coils fresh but still need spacers or perhaps jy upgrade, and the lca's pointless if you are lifting over 3 inches. Your $80 could get you s-10 leafpacks, new ubolts and maybe f150 coils, and then your left finding some takeoff jk shocks, TC drop and rear axle shims.

But...if your lift is years away, then fresh coils, decent shocks, newer bushings in the lca's might be worth the investment for the next couple years. This is where planning comes in handy.

Pass. If you're lifting in a year, you don't need that stuff. Might as well neatly stack $80 in cash, apply A-1 liberally and enjoy.

I also would just put back the 80.00 and save for a quality lift that will replace all those parts. Swapping all that out to just be back at stock height is just too much work for the small benefit you would get from it. Your origional stuff most likely isn't in bad shape now.
