NEWB 2" lift question: spring lift vs bb lift

Alright, i'm looking for 2-3" of lift and to me there seems to be something wrong with using poly/aluminum blocks to lift my zj. so I have been searching for a 2-3" spring lift, and have only found the one that is sold by fat bob's garage:

I say that I prefer full suspension lift, because I am currently used to lowering cars and lifting an suv with a full suspenion of shocks and springs makes more sense to me. I understand that it is more expensive, but as with my summer fun car



i understand having to pay to play....

the goal is to have a nice looking zj with offroad capability when i want it but is comfortable enough to drive for a good distance and do some light towing or parts hauling



i guess i'm looking for suggestions of other companies that make similar lifts or opinions on the kits listed above

Check out Iron Rock Offroad, the last I checked the smallest complete lift they had for a zj was 4.5". Bds also has a few kits but I would go with their 4.5 since their 3" kit doesn't seem complete. I know you said you were only looking for 2-3" of lift but so was I utill I decided on a 4" lift from bds and couldn't be happier with it. They say no just stops with a budget boost so you mine as well skip to the next step.

Check out Iron Rock Offroads 3.5 inch lifts http://www.ironrockoffroad.com/Merch...egory_Code=PFZ

This sounds right up your ally and you want a really good ride do the bilstien upgrade. This lift takes your front coils and moves them to the rear and the new coils in the kit replace the fronts. The adjustable trac bar is a good idea at 3 inches. A rear adjustable trac is a good idea but not a must if moneys tight. Oh and sway bar end links are a must at 3 inches, get quick disconnects if you plan to really flex it out often. Hope this helps

I was looking at iron rock offroad, and wondered if these could replace the factory front springs to be put in the rear....
