Both.

2.5 inch OME lift for ride comfort and flex.
1/2 inch lift booms
1 inch body lift

That's 4 inches of comfortable riding lift. If you want less lift, leave off the 1" body lift.

4 inch lift spring will be arched more and more arch usually means a stiffer ride.

If you don't care about a stiff ride, 4" lift springs will be cheaper.

Agreed I run 2.5" leafs , 5/8 shackle, 1.25" body
It rides smooth drives straight and gives room for 33s flexed
For a dd this is probably the smartest way to lift

My 93 2.5" OME springs 1" boom shackles and 1" body lift and 33" tires. Rides and flexes great.

I have a 3" superlift, procomp shocks, 1" daystar body lift on 33" BFG MT's. Needed to drop my tranny skid plate and get a Cardan drive shaft. I believe I added angle inserts on my rear axle also for correct pinion angle....I think 6.5 degree...not sure.

Not a stiff ride at all.....rides great!

(Maybe compared to my wife's highlander it is...)

Here it is with just the 3" suspension lift....

Nice Jeeps RC and Mrmud.
My body lift is still sitting on the workbench. I just got the cast off my broken arm Tues. and it's still too weak for wrenching...
