Yeah, a 2" lift doesn't really affect anything.

When I did my 2" lift, I didn't even change the stock shocks until much later. It still rode and drove like stock at that point.

You may want to extend your sway bar end links in the front to set your bar back to stock angle. Also think about purchasing two front factory coil isolators and stack them in the front to help level it out more with the rear. I sandwiched my BB in the front and the back is still a little higher.

^^ I like the factory rake.

He could also just leave the rear isolator out to level it out. He'll lose .5" of rear lift, but it's cheaper than a new set of isolators. IIRC they're dealer only and about 35 bucks a pair.
