question about suspension/lift

i have a 100% stock 93 grand cherokee with a 6, my suspension is saggy and i was looking into a kit i went with skyjackers base 3 inch lift which includes Front/Rear Coil Springs; Front/Rear Lower Links; Trac Bar Bracket.
the rear springs are a 2" GRAND CHEROKEE REAR CLS
and the fronts are 3"FRONT COILS JEEP. so the question is instead of buying the complete kit can i buy the 3inch front coils, and buy brand new front springs and put them in the rear to save cash?

ALL ADVICE HELPS!!!

thanks

yeah you could do a front to rear swap, take the springs from the front and put them in the rear. I think that useally nets you about 3-3.5" of lift. Of course you know you will need other things like shocks and control arms are recommended to be changed at anything over 3" of lift so you might be alright with the stock arms, there might be other things that need changing. check this link out it has a pretty good write up on the front to rear swap but instead of using a 3" spring for the front they use an upcountry spring with a spacer. http://www.4x4wire.com/jeep/tech/susp/frt_bck_swap/
hope this helps
