2.5" lift...parts needed?

This will be my first lift on a YJ, so sorry about the newbie question...
I have the springs (w/shims) and shocks. What else is needed? Drop pitman arm? T-case drop? Brake lines needed?
What size are the u-bolts so I can get new ones?

'11 JK Unlimited Sport S, stock for now...
'08 JK X, OEM rear locker and swaybar disco!

Depending on the kit you get, it might have all, some, or none of the parts you need. You will need a transfer case drop kit and new U-bolts. Order a set from Quadratech or any other 4x4 parts place - they know the right size. Shouldn't need a pitman arm. Check the suspension at full droop without the shocks to see if any brake lines are stretched. Turn the front wheels side to side to check the brake lines. Might or might not have to fabricate brake line relocation brackets.
