Shopping for Complete 2-2.5 Lift Kit

My 20yr old springs are complete shiat. Replacing them is my next project and I wanna order the goods ASAP and tear into it.

So, I'm looking for a complete kit w/shocks, hardware, bushings, u-bolts... and springs... of course, I'm talking the whole 9 yards. Been shopping on Quadratech, 4WD mostly. Seems like I can't find a complete kit on Ebay. Nobody local carries anything.

1.) Am I missing any other sites or dealers?
2.) Where did the term "whole 9 yards" originate?*

Morris 4x4. They'll build it with you over the phone. IMHO, if you're going to spend the $$$, go BDS or OME. You won't be disappointed.

This is the parts list of what I ordered from Quadratec for installing OME a few months ago:

One note...the Zone kit does not come with any new frame to shackle bushings (I don't think any of the kits include these bushings). I had to order those separately. You'll probably want to replace them on an 18 year old Jeep. The fronts come off easily. The rears are a pain because of the gas tank. Either drop the gas tank or cut the bolt off. Others have weaseled them out, but I wasn't that lucky.

Also, I was able to sell my old springs to a guy doing an SOA conversion, so don't throw them away.
