There is a guy near Armada that parts out Jeeps. He has a ton of used and new parts. Try him for anything you want to do and it will save you a ton of cash. His name is Chris. Tell him I sent you.

The springs need to match front and rear. You need to do them all. The 2" imo.

2.5 is on the end of the range more because of the drive shaft. Most kits come with the tcase drop. That is easy. You can not replace just 2 so eliminate that option. If you are looking for good used springs try the guy I mentioned.

It all depends on what you see yourself doing with your jeep, if you have any inclination of taking your jeep off-road (which you would want to it's a jeep haha) you will certainly benefit a lot more from 2.5 inches of suspension lift than just stock springs and a body lift. Flex will greatly improve and what not. If you get stock springs but want to upgrade in the future than your just spending more money than you have to. Just my 2 cents

My '94 YJ has a plow. I installed RE heavy duty springs with (greasable shackles) to help support the weight of the plow. It added 2.5" of lift. Stiff ride though with the plow removed but thats rare. Basically a winter plow jeep these days and works great!
