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.

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.
